    Upcoming Tuesday, Feburary 22 Meeting Topic and Speaker:

    Developing for Longhorn

    With a Longhorn client beta due in the next few months, this is a great time
    to start taking a look at this emerging technology and seeing what it means
    to application developers!

    This talk walks through lessons learned when building a Longhorn prototype
    using the most recent public build of Longhorn. The talk will focus on one
    of the two pillars of Longhorn - Avalon. Avalon offers a much more flexible
    model for developers than previous versions of Windows. This talk will
    discuss control customization, as well as databinding options for Avalon
    controls. Although WinFS has been removed from the initial release of
    Longhorn, it is still a major component slated to ship after Longhorn's
    release. Thus, the talk will also discuss strategies for adapting between
    WinFS and SQL Server Express for local storage. You'll walk away with XAML
    and C# code that works with the current build of Longhorn.

    Speaker: Mickey Williams

    Mickey Williams is a C# MVP and the author of nine books on Windows
    programming, including 'Visual C# .NET Core Reference' from Microsoft Press.
    He has spoken at conferences in the USA and Europe, and has been working
    with Longhorn since it was released at the PDC. A Principal Consultant for
    Neudesic LLC, he has worked on the RE3W Longhorn prototype.
