DB Tech Con 2011


I had the privilege of recording 3 sessions in the SSWUG studio this week for the upcoming DB Tech Con conference on April 20-22. This is the largest online conference in IT the world, with speakers covering topics ranging from .NET, SQL Server and cloud.

The focus of my track is all about hybrid solutions in the enterprise and how you can take advantage of AppFabric and BizTalk as a comprehensive platform for building on-premise solutions that take advantage of the cloud in a pragmatic way.

You can find the full session schedule by clicking here and below is an abstract of my sessions that will air starting April 20th:

Building Occasionally Connected Hybrid Applications

Keeping applications and devices synchronized with a company’s back office is a common challenge. Retail, transportation and oil and gas are just a few industries that rely on the ability of software solution deployed outside of the data center to be respond to external events that may occur virtually anywhere. As organizations move certain assets to the cloud, occasionally connected applications are becoming the norm, creating a new breed of hybrid applications. In this session, learn how to implement a sophisticated pattern for enabling push synchronization across your applications and services using Microsoft Sync Framework, SQL Azure and WCF 4.
