Introducing the .NET Service Bus by Juval Lowy
The .NET services bus is part of the new Microsoft Cloud Computing Windows Azure initiative and, arguably, it is the most accessible, ready to use, powerful, and needed piece. The service bus allows clients to connects to services across any machine, network, firewall, NAT, routers, load balancers, virtualization, IP and DNS as if they were part of the same local network, and doing all that without compromising on the programming model or security. The service bus also supports callbacks, event publishing, authentication and authorization and doing all that in a WCF-friendly manner. This session will present the service bus programming model, how to configure and administer service bus solutions, working with the dedicated relay bindings including the available communication modes, relying on authentication in the cloud for local services and the various authentication options, and how to provide for end-to-end security through the relay service. You will also see some advanced WCF programming techniques, original helper classes, productivity-enhancing utilities and tools, as well as discussion of design best practices and pitfalls.
Discover a new WCF with Discovery by Juval Lowy
Up until WCF 4.0, the service address had to be known in advance to the client. This complicated deployment and run time configuration. In addition, the service had no way of knowing that its port or pipe is available for use in the first place. With WCF 4.0, you can use service address discovery to address both issues. The client can discover at run time the service address, and the service can pick up any available address on the fly. WCF also offers announcements of the service when its goes on or off line, and scoping of the discovered services. Moreover, it turns out that discovery opens the door for new ways of composing applications and new design patterns for distributing information in the system. This session starts by discussing the basic support of discovery in WCF and then presents helper classes that streamline the interaction with discovery both on the client and the service side and the related design patterns, including a framework for a discovery-based publish-subscribe system.

Team Foundation Server 2010 for Successful Project Management
Visual Studio Ultimate (formerly Visual Studio Team System (VSTS)) and Team Foundation Server (TFS) are the cornerstones of development on the Microsoft .NET platform. These are the best tools for a project manager to have successful projects and for the developers to have a focused and smooth software development process.
Come and see Adam Cogan, Microsoft Regional Director, VSTS Champ and Chief Architect from SSW show you:
Walk away knowing how to see your project health and progress. Visual Studio Ultimate is designed to help address many of these traditional problems faced by project managers. It does so by providing a set of integrated tools to help teams improve their software development activities and to help project managers better support the software development processes.
During this session we will cover the lifecycle of creating work items and tracking of releases using Visual Studio Ultimate and Team Foundation Server.Visual Studio 2010 Team System - An Overview
Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Team System is an integrated software development platform to build the mission-critical applications that businesses depend on. It extends Visual Studio's integrated and productive experience from the developer to the entire development team by delivering powerful new role-based tools for software architects, developers, testers and project managers. In this session you will see an overview of these tools and how they can improve your software development cycle.Visual Studio 2010 Testing with Team Foundation Server (TFS) 2010 - the life of a bug
Visual Studio 2010 makes up a large part of a .Net developers life. This session will delve into the 'life of a bug' by taking a walk in the shoes of an everyday bug from discovery to release (and the steps that make up the in between). Come along and check out the new features that will make you happier by making your code better, your job easier, and your team more productive by reducing the obstacles you face in your everyday coding life.

In this session Adam Cogan will provide information about what is new in SharePoint 2010 and his personal favorites. The SharePoint Team has invested in many including:
Lets see what's good and what's not.Something About Mary (SharePoint 2010 and Office 2010)
Come see Adam Cogan explain what works well with SharePoint and Office for Mary and the other knowledge workers.
First you will get an overview of what is great about having SharePoint in your business. Then see real world examples of:
This is a good chance for you to consider new ways of using Office in your company, along with pitfalls to avoid. Adam gets excited about this session because too often companies limit Office to just an email application, word processor and spreadsheet - completely missing the positive impact it can have on the entire business process.
