I’m happy to announce that I will speak at the upcoming European SharePoint Conference 2011, which will be take place in Berlin (Germany) from the 18th of October to the 20th of October 2011.
I will talk about the following three topics:
- W28 – Developing a SharePoint 2010 Service Application [Wednesday 19th Oct]: this will be a session for experienced SharePoint developers willing to learn how to develop a custom Service Application for SharePoint 2010. I will explain the architecture of Service Applications and then I will move to Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 in order to show a concrete example of a service application built upon the scalable architecture provided by SharePoint 2010, Windows Communication Foundation and the claims-based philosophy. The goal of this session is to understand the potentials that can be realized using the Service Application Framework (aka SAF), being able to determine when building custom services is useful. The session level will be 400 on a scale from 100 to 500.
- Th7 – Business Connectivity Services for Developers [Thursday 20th Oct]: this session will cover Business Connectivity Services (BCS) from a developer perspective. I will start showing the architecture of BCS, then I will move to consume a WCF service offering CRUDQ capabilities on a back-end data repository. Lastly I will show how to implement a basic BDC Model using Microsoft Visual Studio 2010. This will be an hands-on session, full of examples taken from from real projects I developed and from my last book about SharePoint 2010. The session level will be 300 on a scale from 100 to 500.
- Th22 – SharePoint 2010 Workflow Development with Visual Studio 2010 [Thursday 20th Oct]: This will be an hands-on session focusing on development of SharePoint 2010 Workflows using Microsoft Visual Studio 2010. In particular I will cover topics about custom workflow and task forms, custom activities and the development of external data exchange services, which are a brilliant new feature of SharePoint 2010 workflows. Be careful that this session will not cover workflows designed using Microsoft SharePoint Designer 2010. The session level will be 300 on a scale from 100 to 500.
