    Tuesday, June 15, 2010 7:00 PM, Vienna, VA
    Learn all about WCF RIA Services from Leonard Van Lowe
    Microsoft WCF RIA Services simplifies the traditional n-tier application pattern by bringing together the ASP.NET and Silverlight platforms. RIA Services provides a pattern to write application logic that runs on the mid-tier and controls access to data for queries, changes and custom operations. It also provides end-to-end support for common tasks such as data validation, authentication and roles by integrating with Silverlight components on the client and ASP.NET on the mid-tier.

Resources such as blogs, videos and books go into great detail on module architecture, the data layer and interacting with the DotNetNuke Core API. However, when it comes to developing DotNetNuke modules with rich, engaging and contemporary user interfaces, the resources are few and far between.
    The "Visual DotNetNuke" Hackathon aims to give developers the knowledge and tools to create great-looking DotNetNuke modules that engage users and create a delightful user experience.
    Module Development Competition
    The Hackathon is more than just a learning experience, it's also a Module Development competition. In order to participate (and be eligible to win a prize) you have to create a DotNetNuke module in 24 hours that follows the theme for the Hackathon -- Visual DotNetNuke. The best modules are eligible for some great prizes.
    Speakers
    The Visual DotNetNuke Hackathon will kick-off with presentations by two of DotNetNuke Corp.'s co-founders: Nik Kalyani and Joe Brinkman.

  • Microsoft Developer Dinner for Partners: Microsoft Windows Identity Foundation: A New Age of Identity
    Wednesday, June 23, 2010 6:00 PM, Reston, VA
    Windows Identity Foundation helps .NET developers build claims-aware applications that externalize user authentication from the application, improving developer productivity, enhancing application security, and enabling interoperability. Developers can enjoy greater productivity, using a single simplified identity model based on claims. They can create more secure applications with a single user access model, reducing custom implementations and enabling end users to securely access applications via on-premises software as well as cloud services. Finally, they can enjoy greater flexibility in application development through built-in interoperability that allows users, applications, systems and other resources to communicate via claims.
    During this developers’ dinner we will explore the Claims-Based Identity capabilities offer by Windows, Microsoft Windows Identity Foundation and its integration into AD Federation Services v2 and the Azure platform.
