 .Net Enterprise Development

Host: Ted Neward

.NET is growing heavily in deployment for enterprise systems, and continues to be augmented with new technologies from Microsoft such as the Windows Communication Foundation and Windows Workflow Foundation. As this happens, open source frameworks and technologies are stating to emerge including for example NHibernate and Spring.NET.

Many of the ideas in these frameworks leverage notions and best-practices such as dependency injection, POJO persistence and unit-testing that have previously been used in for example Java; these are equally applicable in enterprise development anywhere.

In this track, we will cover both of these worlds: new technologies emerging from Microsoft as well as some significant additions to the palette of software development tools and practices in .NET world.
