WCF and Workflow Foundation technologies
A considerable amount of his career has been spent working with Document Management and Enterprise Workflow systems and he is passionate about solving not only technical problems, but business problems.
At last years code camp I was lucky enough to present on Silverlight 1.0. I've had my fingers in the pie since it was wpf/e and I still find it an amazing technology!
One year on and Microsoft has advanced the technology, making is simpler and much more powerfull.
I'll spend some time showing some real world uses of the technology from a Business Application perspective. How it plays perfectly with ASP.Net and some of the other core Microsoft technologies. And of course it would be amiss if there wasn't some fun stuff in here too.
Some of the main topics:
<li>Ease of use with ASP.Net Web Forms</li>
<li>WCF / Services</li>
