Smart Solutions with SmartClients

Rich, powerful and flexible, SmartClients are so much more than just Windows Forms applications. Join us for this free half-day event and see three different SmartClient approaches in action, while leveraging what you already know about Microsoft tools and platforms. Expand your reach with mobile applications and learn how to use Visual Studio 2005 Tools for Office to create solutions that integrate seamlessly with Excel, Word and Outlook. Finally, see the future of UI development for Windows Vista and explore WinFX, XAML and more.

If you develop on the Microsoft platform, you already have the skills and tools you need to create mobile applications for exciting Windows Mobile devices such as Pocket PCs and Smartphones. We’ll cover:

• Options for accessing and synchronizing data with SQL Server Mobile edition
• The latest features of Windows Mobile 5.0 devices

Session #2: Creating Office Solutions with Visual Studio 2005 Tools for Office
Pair Microsoft Office with development tools and you’ve got a full-fledged SmartClient platform. It’s a great introduction to Visual Studio 2005 Tools for Office. This session explores:
• How code and the object model are tightly integrated between Visual Studio and Office documents
• Solution techniques including data binding, the actions pane and managed add-ins for Outlook

Session #3: Introduction to the Windows Presentation Framework
Join the desktop revolution by building applications with Windows Vista. You’ll see a fresh approach to creating highly visual, interactive and exciting applications in this first look at the Windows Presentation Foundation (formerly code-named Avalon). This session will:
