Devdays is here!
Doug Turnure and a cast of others have started the day with a keynote. Following a couple video's about the IRL and Match.com using .Net technologies to “do more with less“, they are focusing on a number of new Microsoft products including Biztalk Server, SQL Reporting Serivices, and Whitehorse. SQL reporting services is one of those great looking tools that I really need to take a closer look at. It looks like a very effective way to provide end users with reports on data. Whitehorse, shown by Ken Spencer is described as an “Integrated model-driven set of design tools to increase productivity and predicatability in design, development, deployment and maintenance of service-oriented distrubted systems“. Translation: Very Cool! It's far from just another code generator.
I'm going to be attending the Smart Client presentations and will post anything of interest.
Greg and I will be at the TRINUG user group table during the breaks meeting and hope to make many new .Net contacts.
