We held the first "TechTalk" today at Al Murooj Rotana for Partners who work with Microsoft with sessions on:
· Introducing Windows Azure - Anton Delsink
· Windows 7 - Wilson Xavier
· Web 2.0 - Pooya Darugar
· Network Access Protection - Zahid Tikrity
Unfortunately I had to do my session in 45 minutes as we were running late, but as promised the slides are here for your review. I tried to look at Web 2.0 from a holisitc view, starting with Web 2.0 in the enterprise and then discussing the more well known web facing side for both user experience (AJAX, Silverlight) and the infrastructure (RSS, Live Services, ...)
This will be an ongoing series where you'll have a chance to connect with me and my colleagues from the Developer and Platform group as well as the Consultants who give their real life implementation experience. If you'd like to attend, let me know as these are by invitation events.
