Putting our head in the clouds with the RX Framework

Track: .Net, thursday 11:20 - 12:10

As we plant our applications in the cloud we need to reorient our thinking from synchronous toward asynchronous programming. The reactive framework coming out Microsoft Live Labs is designed to help you make the transition. With it you can move from an imperative, pull-style of programming to an event-based async model. RX works in Silverlight and with the recent announcement of JS extensions for RX you can use it in your AJAX style applications even with JQuery! Come to this talk and we’ll dig into RX for Silverlight and Javscript and make the mental leap together.

Embracing HTTP in the .NET platform - Have it your way!

Track: .Net, wednesday 10:15 - 11:05

In WCF vNext Microsoft is making serious investments to provide richer and more natural support for HTTP. This is not just about adding a new set of attributes :-) It's about providing pure HTTP support at every level within the stack. It's the "have it your way" of HTTP! We're embracing HTTP so you can embrace HTTP within your own development. And we're not just setting out on this venture alone. We're working with folks across the .NET, Java and Ruby communities so that we can cross this bridge together! Come to this talk and we'll explore the work we've done and where we're going; and you'll get an inside perspective on what the future looks like.
