Data Access Practically Done - Orlando Here I Come!

<P class=MsoNormal style=”MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt; mso-margin-top-alt: auto; mso-margin-bottom-alt: auto”>Tomorrow in Orlando we are kicking off our inaugral session for the “Practically Done” event series. I will be at the University of Central Florida Campus on August 1st (Wednesday) and on August 4th (Saturday) to present the “Data Access Done Right” session. The event series is pretty cool as it targets technology strategies that can be used today. So instead of teaching and lecturing topics that may be coming down the pipeline, we will be handing out the code and slide deck to all attendees at the beginning of the event. Attendees are encouragde to load the code and follow along or to use it back at the office.</P> <P class=MsoNormal style=”MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt; mso-margin-top-alt: auto; mso-margin-bottom-alt: auto”> </P> <P class=MsoNormal style=”MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt; mso-margin-top-alt: auto; mso-margin-bottom-alt: auto”>Topics includes:</P> <P class=MsoNormal style=”MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt; mso-margin-top-alt: auto; mso-margin-bottom-alt: auto”>- ADO.NET</P> <P class=MsoNormal style=”MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt; mso-margin-top-alt: auto; mso-margin-bottom-alt: auto”>- Data Access Layers and Enterprise Library</P> <P class=MsoNormal style=”MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt; mso-margin-top-alt: auto; mso-margin-bottom-alt: auto”>- Data Access in the MVP Pattern</P> <P class=MsoNormal style=”MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt; mso-margin-top-alt: auto; mso-margin-bottom-alt: auto”>- Custom Business Object Design</P> <P class=MsoNormal style=”MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt; mso-margin-top-alt: auto; mso-margin-bottom-alt: auto”>- DataSet design</P> <P class=MsoNormal style=”MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt; mso-margin-top-alt: auto; mso-margin-bottom-alt: auto”>- Data Access with ASP.NET, WPF and Windows Forms</P> <P class=MsoNormal style=”MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt; mso-margin-top-alt: auto; mso-margin-bottom-alt: auto”> </P> <P class=MsoNormal style=”MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt; mso-margin-top-alt: auto; mso-margin-bottom-alt: auto”> </P> <P class=MsoNormal style=”MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt; mso-margin-top-alt: auto; mso-margin-bottom-alt: auto”>I will also give a preview of the changes coming in Visual Studio 2008 with ADO.NET, LINQ and the Entity Framework. </P> <P class=MsoNormal style=”MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt; mso-margin-top-alt: auto; mso-margin-bottom-alt: auto”> </P> <P class=MsoNormal style=”MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt; mso-margin-top-alt: auto; mso-margin-bottom-alt: auto”> </P> <P class=MsoNormal style=”MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt; mso-margin-top-alt: auto; mso-margin-bottom-alt: auto”>The cost is very minimal, only $150 to $199 depending on when you bought … and there are plenty of discounts out there too.
