Code Project Virtual Tech Summit Session
If you missed the premiere of one of our virtual tech summits you'll still be able to view these sessions. This video originally premiered in our Mobile Development Summit November 17, 2010.
WP7 can leverage existing Silverlight development skills. The demo will cover some these areas:
- How to expose SQL Server data via a WCF Service
- How to use the ADO.NET Entity framework to simplify development efforts when exposing relational data
- How to leverage the cloud to host relational data
- How to migrate on-premise data to SQL Azure (cloud-based SQL Server) and consume it from Silverlight (WP7 and traditional IE-hosted Silverlight)
- How to use formatters and converters in Silverlight to make your data look the way you want
Starting with Turbo C and 8086 Assembler in the late 80s, Bruno has kept busy teaching and writing code in a multitude of platforms, languages, frameworks, SDKs, libraries, and APIs.
Bruno's depth of knowledge comes from years of experience in the field, where he can bring real-world knowledge and combine it with forward thinking that is required for his current role as a Developer Evangelist at Microsoft. Prior to evangelism, Bruno was a Microsoft Premier Field Engineer, helping customers in remote locations on a moment's notice to help with extreme troubleshooting scenarios, including problem isolation and correction, live and post-mortem debugging, on-the-fly application design and code reviews, performance tuning (IIS, SQL Server, .NET), application stability, porting / migration assistance, configuration management, pre-rollout testing and general development consulting.
As an evangelist, Bruno spends time writing code and giving live presentations on building cloud based applications, specifically using the Windows Azure Platform. He also takes a strong interest in Mobile Computing and is convinced that both mobile and cloud platforms, separately and together, are poised for huge growth over the next 10 years.
Bruno is very optimistic about the potential for new interactions with software using Kinect. The software industry has been languishing in aging approaches to human interactions and software. Kinect opens up an brave new world of possibilities to next generation software engineering.
