Golf Event Invitation  

Microsoft TechDay Pass holders get in free!

You are invited to two exclusive seminars at Microsoft Canada headquarters, hosted by Billy Hollis and Barry Gervin, two of North America’s best-known and most widely respected Microsoft Regional Directors on Thursday, October 2nd 2008.

You may have already heard about the exciting possibilities offered by Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) and Silverlight from Microsoft. But many Project Leaders and Managers do not fully understand the potential and implications of these new technologies. IT teams are also wondering how to improve developer productivity by merging and simplifying the programming models for web versus client-server user interfaces.

Simply put, WPF and Silverlight make possible a quantum leap in how users will experience and interact with the business applications in their organization.

For new and casual users, this will mean a much lower barrier to initial use and productivity. For experienced power-users, it offers the potential for an even more significant increase in productivity.

The AM Seminar is aimed at Project Leaders, Architects, IT Managers and CIOs.

Billy Hollis and Barry Gervin will:

  • Show you why WPF and Silverlight are going to change your users' expectations

  • Demonstrate business applications that have been written in WPF and Silverlight and deliver a new level of user experience

  • Explain how these technologies fit with the other Microsoft products you are already using

  • Suggest a road map to help you decide when and how to introduce WPF and Silverlight into your organization

The PM seminar is aimed at Developers, Architects, and Project Leaders

Bill Hollis and Barry Gervin will:

  • Show you the products’ common programming model and common markup language

  • Review the basic structure of the XAML mark-up language

  • Show you important WPF capabilities such as animation, transforms, styling, and templates (including code samples)

  • Demonstrate new business applications that have been written in WPF and Silverlight (including code samples)

  • Present a Road Map on how to get started with WPF and Silverlight, and how to avoid most of the common pitfalls

The cost for this seminar is 25$, but if you have registered with a Microsoft TechDay Pass, you can attend the seminars for free!

This event is sponsored by ObjectSharp Consulting and Microsoft Canada.
