  • http://10rem.net/blog/2010/10/28/the-present-and-future-of-wpf
    WPF – VS2010 shell and editor. Expression Blend. Expression Design uses both. WebMatrix.
  • Support for some features of the HTML5 Working Draft specification was introduced in Internet Explorer 8, including:
    DOM Storage, defined as part of the HTML5 Web Storage specification
    Ajax Navigation, implemented via the window.location.hash property and the onhashchange event, both of which are defined in the History Traversal section of the HTML5 specification
    Cross-document messaging, implemented via the postMessage method and the onmessage event, which are both specified as part of the HTML5 Web Messaging module
    Internet Explorer 9 Beta builds on the work done on HTML5 compliance in Internet Explorer 8, and implements the following new features:
    The new video and audio HTML elements
    The new canvas HTML element
    The Selection interface
    More interoperable HTML parsing
    Several new DOM APIs, as discussed in the DOM L2 HTML section of this document
    Scaling Vector Graphics (SVG)
    Note  It is important to remember that, as of this writing, the HTML5 specification is still in the Working Draft stage. Until it reaches the Candidate Recommendation stage, it could change significantly. For more information, see the latest HTML5 working draft.
  • OData does this by applying and building upon Web technologies such as HTTP, Atom Publishing Protocol (AtomPub) and JSON
  • What are the benefits to the ISV and to their customers?
    The ISV can differentiate from competitors by offering tight integration to Sharepoint – rather than just another standalone web site. Right now most ISVs do not offer tight integration.
    Potential for wider user base within a customer as “snippets” of the ISV application functionality and data get surfaced via a sharepoint portal – could leave to additional revenue.
    The difficulty is an ISV does not want to create an application that only works if sharepoint is present and wants to avoid having two versions of their application.
     
    What is involved to get an existing ISV application on the Windows Azure Platform?
    Most applications will take weeks to months to get to a point where they are integrated tightly with Sharepoint. Very simple integration could be achieved in days.
     
    ISVs can
    Expose some/all of their functionality through the Sharepoint portal (addins/web parts)
    Store documents in Sharepoint rather than “on the C drive”
    Modularise their functionality to make it available as tasks to sharepoint workflows enabling the customer to integrate the app into their business processes
    Use Sharepoint forms as data capture into their own application rather than their own custom UI

    • 13. Windows Phone 7
    • 14. Data Storing data - SQL Server 2008 R2 Working with your data - ORMs Projecting your data - OData
    • 15. Data • Storing data - SQL Server 2008 R2 • “Be compatible” vs “Take a dependency”? – NB: Mainstream support for SQL Server 2005 ends 12/04/2011 • I will leave this one to Keith  • Working with your data – ORMs • Entity Framework 4 is mature and capable. Trust me on this 
    • 16. Data • Projecting your data – Open Data Protocol (OData) • Protocol for querying and updating data • Follows many of the REST principles • WCF Data Services easily exposes your data via OData • Examples • SQL Azure Labs • SQL Server 2008 R2 Reporting Services • SharePoint 2010 • PowerPivot for Excel 2010 • CRM 2011 • Windows Azure Tables • Windows Azure DataMarket
    • 17. New platforms: SharePoint 2010
    • 18. SharePoint 2010 • SharePoint is fantastically popular amongst your customers • Over 100M licenese, 17K cystomers, #1 Portal (Forrester) • 4000+ partners in the eco-system • Customers love having “one place” • Would like applications from ISVs to also be in the “one place” • But developing for SharePoint 2007 was … err… yucky • The good news is developing for SharePoint 2010 is vastly better • Which means the time is right to look again at SharePoint
    • 19. Development on Windows 7 Windows 7
    • 20. Full support inside Visual Studio 2010 Web Part DesignerProject Types
    • 21. Developer Dashboard
    • 22.

    • 23. Improved Data Access Technologies LINQ Farm Site List Data External Lists Data Platform Client-side Server-side Strongly-typed lists Weakly-typed lists Strongly-typed lists Weakly-typed listsServer OM Client OM REST APIs
    • 24. Enables LINQ // Get the SharePoint list EntityList<Customer> Customers = data.GetList<Customer>("Customers"); // Query for customers from London var londonCustomers = from customer in Customers where customer.City == "London" select customer; foreach (var londonCust in londonCustomers) { Console.Writeline("id = {0}, City = {1}", londonCust.CustomerId, londonCust.City); }
    • 25. Enables Silverlight
    • 26. New platforms: The “Cloud”
    • 27. Is “Cloud” Inveitable? “By 2012, 80% of Fortune 1000 enterprises will be using some cloud computing services, 20% of businesses will own no IT assets.” Gartner “The bottom line: Early adopters are finding serious benefits, meaning that cloud computing is real and warrants your scrutiny as a new set of platforms for business applications.” Forrester
    • 28. Usage Compute Time Average Inactivity Period “On and Off “ On and off workloads (e.g. batch job) Over provisioned capacity is wasted Time to market can be cumbersome Compute Time “Unpredictable Bursting“ Average Usage Unexpected/unplanned peak in demand Sudden spike impacts performance Can’t over provision for extreme cases Average Usage Compute Time “Growing Fast“ Successful services needs to grow/scale Keeping up w/growth is big IT challenge Complex lead time for deployment Compute Time Average Usage “Predictable Bursting“ Services with micro seasonality trends Peaks due to periodic increased demand IT complexity and wasted capacity Is it just about this?
    • 29. “I want to try something now“ Need to quickly provision new machines for a temporary period of time “Departmental“ Need to quickly provision new machines for a departmental solution Or is it also about this? Machines Time Machines Time “Just store data in the Cloud“ With all processing elsewhere “Extend to the Cloud“ Extend existing applications “Migrate existing applications“ Benefits of reduced operational costs “New hybrid services“ On-premise and Cloud aka S+S

    • 33. Summary • We face many new challenges and potential opportunities • Microsoft is trying to help you with new technology • Good questions to ask? • Which of HTML5 (IE9), Silverlight and WPF fit your needs best? (It is fine to choose all – as we have) • Does simplicity of developing for Phone 7 open up a new channel? • Why are you not using an ORM? • OData is a powerful enabler. Are you (or your customers) a producer, a consumer or both? • Is it the right time to integrate with SharePoint? • Can you ignore the cloud?
