May and June Events – Developer Productivity

Double your fun!  May/June sessions feature 4 topics for free, from 1-5 pm in the cities listed below!

This highly informative session will explore the latest in leveraging Application Blocks, Visual Studio 2005 features and SQL Server 2005 capabilities.


Explore developing with three distinct application blocks—reusable code components from Microsoft for common programming tasks that encapsulate best practices and real-world requirements.


Discover rapid application development, which is one of the main areas of improvement in the next major version of Visual Studio 2005 IDE (Integrated Development Environment). We’ll also look at the new code snippet – IntelliTask- feature, namespace shortcuts and language enhancements.


Explore the extended XML capabilities of the next major version of Microsoft SQL Server 2005. We’ll also discuss how SQL Server 2005’s ability to host the .NET Framework common language runtime (CLR) will enable stored procedures, triggers and user-defined functions to be written in Visual Basic .NET and C#, and then run in its memory managed, type-safe and secure execution environment.


Learn how the recently released SQL Server 2000 Reporting Services integrates with Visual Studio .NET to create and customize reports and manage delivery of updated reports in the Report Manager.
