Data access is an integral component of an enterprise application’s architecture. Retrieving data, saving data, passing data between tiers, presenting data to a user interface, and managing transactions are all important pieces of a data access strategy. In this “Practically Done” workshop, Microsoft MVP John Papa will show you how to apply these techniques in your multi-tier applications today using Visual Studio 2005. The topics that will be covered in detail are:
- ADO.NET library
- Enterprise Library’s Data Access Application Block
- Building custom business objects
- Self-validation of business entities
- Presenting data to and from WPF, ASP.NET and Windows Forms .NET
In addition, John will give you a look into the future of data access through demonstrations of Microsoft's Entity Framework, LINQ and DLINQ technologies using Visual Studio 2008. This is one event that you don't want to miss!
Code for all of the demonstrations will be provided to you on DVD upon your arrival at the workshop, so feel free to bring your laptop and follow along as each code sample is discussed. Don't worry about running out of power, because each attendee will have their own power outlet.
Continental breakfast and lunch will be served, as well as snacks and beverages throughout the day.
