TD2011logo If you attend the Microsoft Techdays in Geneva that are taking place tomorrow (Tuesday) and Wednesday, you are welcome to meet the Cambridge Technology Partners team. On the booth, there will be a demo showing an application, SharePlus, made by SouthLabs used to access SharePoint content. We will show you how you can still have your documents and data at your hand, with an iPad.

This year, the TechDays will focus on the Microsoft’s answer regarding the cloud with Azure. Indeed, several presentations will speak about this technology.

And don’t forget to attend the two presentations of my friend Benjamin Soulier, with “Les nouveautés de Windows Azure”, Tuesday at 3pm in the development track, and with “Le meilleur des deux mondes : SharePoint et Azure”, Wednesday at 4pm, also in the development track.

It was a tough night to prepare the demo for the TechDays in Bern. Installing the PDAs and struggling with some of them on which it was not possible to install the CRM. Fortunately, after some hard-reset, everything was ready for the H-Hour.

Have a look at the install in the Hotel room :-) :

Thanks to Julien and Didier for the PDAs !

The next version of the framework will be more focused on dynamic languages and will keep the C# and VB.NET in parallel.
It also introduces extensions to support the parallelism in a declarative and imperative way. In that extensions, we will have PLINQ (for Parallel LINQ) to parallelize LINQ queries, TPL (Task Parallel Library) and CDS (Coordination Data Structure).
One of the new feature is the ability to install the client profile on every configuration whereas for the previous versions, it needed to be installed on a clean infrastructure.
Among other things, new controls for WPF, multitouh support under Windows 7 and an easyness to develop user interface based on datasource even though the Entity Framework is not yet supported in the presented version. The MVC will be implemented with a dynamic data support.
On the WCF side, some enhancements have been implemented such as SOAP over UDP and more WS-* support. Moreover, building a RESTfull application will be simplified.
With the .NET framework 4, WF and WCF will work together as they will be completely integrated. Nevertheless, and big change, workflows will be defined in XAML-only by default. On the other side, more activities will be available in the toolbox.
A lot of improvements in terms of performance and scalability have been done and and a new workflow type is now available : FlowChart. Now, activities can receive arguments and return values.
When developing custom activities, it will be possible to define a custom design using a WPF designed
Basically, and in short, the 4th version of .NET allows a workflow (WF) to be exposed using WCF (interface), while, on the hosting side, it will rely on Dublin which is a Windows Server 2008 Application Role extension.

Once again, I have the pleasure to participate to the TechDays in Geneva at the CICG. This year, not only I will be present at the booth of CTP, but we will be one of the Premium Sponsor of the event and we also have a speaker on stage to talk about Velocity. Before saying too much about this new technology coming out really soon, just note that it will be the distributed cache solution from Microsoft. Be there at the session to know more of that new technology.

Today, during the setup of the booth (by the way, come to us to participate to our Multi-touch contest and see a multi-touch application running), I had the possibility to talk with people from Wygwam and playing with their Microsoft Surface. That is just unbelievable. So much that, to appreciate it, it must be tested... As an example, there was a drum playing game which allows to have a lot of fun. I want one of them :-) At least, it is a good way to have guests every day at home :-)

For tomorrow, a bit of Visual Studio 2010 with the .NET framework 4 and ASP.NET, Geneva - the identity management system, not the city - SQL Data Services, Mesh and WF with Dublin. Sounds promising.
