This is a unique opportunity to get a head start on the technologies available in Windows Vista... If there's one training that you allow your developers to go on this year - make sure it's this one!!! 

Here's what they will do:

Technical exercises that highlight some of the compelling new UI design enhancements.

  • XAML (Extensible Application Mark up Language) to revolutionize the way you design, build and work on smart client applications.
  • Built in Workflow features (similar to BizTalk) provided by Workflow Foundation (WF).
  • Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) to reduce the amount of infrastructure code required to achieve secure, cross platform B2B interoperability (implementing the WS-* Web Service standards).
  • Information management capabilities that enable users to find documents, e-mail messages, and other information in seconds-and utilize that information in the most intuitive way possible.
  • Fast start up that improves performance by recovering from sleep mode in only a few seconds.
  • Increased reliability through prevention and fixes for known hangs and crashes with the addition of new Instrumentation APIs and a Feedback Portal.
  • An easy-to-navigate user interface named Windows Aero that increases user productivity from earlier Windows versions.
