On Thursday ( 12/3 ) I have the opportunity to speak at the Wisconsin Azure User Group. I want to first say thank you for the invite, Wade and I had a blast talking with everyone.
We managed to cover a great deal of information. I am going to try and just hit the high points, attach some demo's, etc.
Wade covered Azure and specifically:
- Windows Azure AppFabric Dallas* SQL Azure
Rather than going into each of the different topics just check out Wade's blog post for everything he covered.
During my part of the talk ( i.e. what Wade decided to leave me ), I covered the Silverlight 4 announcements along with a number of random .NET announcements. You can see all of that in the presentation below:
DEMO's DEMO's DEMO's
I couldn't do I also did a few demos, specifically:
- A printing technique in .NET and WPF.2. Basic MEF, or Hello World with MEF3. ASP.NET MVC in concert with MEF. Here we used MEF to dynamically load a portion of the MVC site.
You can download the source for those demos here:
But wait that's not all....

If you were a bit early to the UG meeting you might have noticed the following video playing on the screen. As a very handy guy who has always built his machine you just have to love this video.
