Die PDC ist die Professional Developer Conference von Microsoft. Diesmal findet sie in Redmond statt, und beinhaltet wieder einige sehr interessante Vorträge.

Leider ist die PDC seit Wochen ausverkauft. Zum Glück gibt es aber auch einen Live Stream zur PDC. Das Ganze ist kostenlos, und kann auch zu einem späteren Zeitpunkt on demand abgerufen werden. Nur für den Fall, dass sich jemand, völlig unbegreiflicherweise, nicht die ganze Nacht um die Ohren schlagen will Smile.

Klarerweise gibt es auch einige Vorträge, die auch und gerade für Open Source Entwickler interessant sein könnten:

  • Freitag 29.10. 00:15 – 01:15
    Creating Custom OData Services: Inside Some of The Top OData Services:
    What does it take to build a real-world OData (Open Data Protocol) service that’s secure, scalable and works great with all clients across the Web? Come to hear all the details on how some of the most popular OData services are built. We will discuss how WCF Data Services is used in typical and not-so-typical contexts, how we layer-in business logic and security, how we deal with custom back-ends that don’t look like databases, and more.
  • Freitag 29.10. 01:30 – 02:30
    Enabling New Scenarios and Applications with Data in the Cloud:
    The cloud enables new scenarios for sharing and consuming data. In this session you will learn how to differentiate your applications by building them on top of Windows Azure platform and leveraging visualization and access to private, public and premium content available through Microsoft Codename “Dallas”. You will also learn how to use some of the new services and features announced at the PDC.
  • Freitag 29.10. 18:00 – 19:00
    Open in the Cloud: Windows Azure and Java:
    The Windows Azure Platform is an open and interoperable platform which supports development using many programming languages and tools. In this session, you will see how to build large-scale applications in the cloud using Java, taking advantage of new Windows Azure Platform features. You will learn how to build Windows Azure applications using Java with Eclipse, Apache Tomcat, and the Windows Azure SDK for Java.
  • Freitag 29.10. 18:00 – 19:00
    Building Web APIs for the Highly Connected Web:
    Are you building Web APIs for reaching any device, enabling mash-ups, or providing highly connected Web experiences? Then come to this session and learn how to build Web APIs your way in Windows Azure. We put you in control of patterns (REST, pub/sub, RPC, Hypertext) and formats (XML, JSON, URIs, Atom, OData) and enable you to leverage new technologies to build Web APIs exactly the way you want them.
  • Freitag 29.10. 20:30 – 21:30
    ASP.NET + Packaging + Open Source = Crazy Delicious:
    Lots of great open source software is available, but it’s hard to figure out the best choice, get it, set it up, run it and update it. Visual Studio 2010 just came out but now we’ve got ASP.NET MVC 3, Razor, EF Magic Unicorn, SQL Compact Edition, HTML 5 and lots more coming at us fast. How can I easily get this stuff and put it together in an application in a reasonable amount of time. Join Scott Hanselman in this *no-slides* talk as he tries to make sense of the .NET Framework and introduces you to some *new* tools that just might make your life (and the lives of open source developers) a lot easier.

Im Laufe der Konferenz werden auch weitere Vorträge live gehen, wie z.B.:

  • Developing PHP Applications on the Windows Azure Platform:
    Microsoft’s Windows Azure Platform provides a comprehensive set of services for building and running scalable PHP applications targeting cloud. In this session we go on a coding tour using open source development tools (Eclipse, Command line), SDKs and applications (Drupal, WordPress) on the Windows Azure platform. On this tour, see how PHP web applications can use the scalable compute and storage services with Windows Azure, secure connectivity and data service techniques in the cloud using OData and Microsoft SQL Azure.
  • WebMatrix: The Web Reloaded:
    Microsoft WebMatrix is a free tool that simplifies building, customizing and publishing websites and web applications. In this session, we’ll take a tour of what is possible with WebMatrix, including how to easily build and customize web applications based on open source applications like WordPress, Umbraco, Orchard or many others from the gallery. You’ll also see some of the new features that make it easy to build web applications from the ground up, including the new inline programming syntax called ‘Razor’ and the wide range of helpers that make difficult or repetitive web development tasks easy to do. We’ll also walk through creating your own helpers that make is simple for them to plugin to your website’s Web APIs and build experiences powered by your services.
