Visual Studio Live! Conference in Las Vegas

Filed under: C#,General,VB.NET @ 3:56 pm

There is so much to know these days with all of the new technologies, techniques, and tools in Visual Studio and the .NET framework. How do you even decide which technologies deserve your attention and which you can "give a miss"?

One of the benefits of a technical conference like Visual Studio Live! is to figure out which new things are a "must know", which are a "fun to know", which are a "wait to know", and which are a "never need to know".

My presentations are on "Best Kept Secrets in Visual Studio 2010 and .NET 4.0" and "Silverlight, WCF RIA Services, and Your Business Objects".

The first talk covers may of the tips, tricks, and lesser known features of Visual Studio and the .NET Framework. Most of these items should be on your "must know" or "fun to know" list.

The Silverlight talk covers how to communicate between Silverlight and your own business objects or plain old CLR objects (POCOs).
