I am attending PDC in Los Angeles. There are a few sessions relating to SQL Compact, that I will consider attending:
SQL Server Compact: Embedding in Desktop and Device Applications
Wed 10/29 | 3:00 PM-4:15 PM | 402A
Presenter: Steve Lasker
Learn how SQL Server Compact can be used to create data files for your applications, run applications directly from DVD, capture user activity, and sync "back home." Learn the different deployment options, including the newly released 64-bit support and best practices for performance.
Offline-Enabled Data Services and Desktop Applications
Wed 10/29 | 3:00 PM-4:15 PM | 408A
Presenter: Pablo Castro
The ADO.NET Data Services Framework (a.k.a. Project "Astoria") introduced a way of creating and consuming flexible, data-centric REST services. By combining data services with the Microsoft Sync Framework, learn how to create offline-capable applications that have a local replica of their data, how to synchronize that replica with an online data service when a network connection becomes available, and how replicas can be used with the ADO.NET Entity Framework. Also, hear us talk about our plans, see the tools that help client- and server-side setup, and discuss the runtime components and APIs.
Microsoft Sync Framework Advances
Mon 10/27 | 1:45 PM-3:00 PM | 515B
Presenter: Lev Novik
This session shows you how the next version of the Microsoft Sync Framework makes it easier to synchronize distributed copies of data across desktops, devices, services, or anywhere else they may be stored.
Sync Framework: Enterprise Data in the Cloud and on Devices
Tue 10/28 | 5:15 PM-6:30 PM | 408A
Presenter: Liam Cavanagh
See how synchronization plays a pivotal role in transitioning to a managed cloud environment by creating a central hub of information in the cloud. Using synchronization, organizations can enable more efficient mobile and enterprise-to-enterprise scenarios.
Hope to see you there!
