In about a few hours I’m starting a trip to Chicago to attendVSLive Chicago conference. It is going to be the second time I’m speaking in VSLive conference and I’m excited (the previous one had been in VSLive Redmond 2012). This time I’m having three back-to-back sessions at the same day (Wednesday). The session topics are:

  1. Working with Client-Side HTML5 Storage Technologies 
    HTML is the markup language that every web developer uses in order to structure and present content in the Internet. HTML5 is the standard that is being shaped and developed currently. It extends and improves the last HTML4 standard and takes it to the next level with support for multimedia, communication, semantics and more. In this session we will deep dive into the new storage options that HTML5 brings and how to use them. The session will discuss Web Storage, IndexedDB and AppCache APIs.
  2. OData - Oh Yeah 
    Open Data Protocol (OData) is a protocol for exposing and consuming data on the web. The OData ecosystem is a growing community of data producers and consumers using the Open Data Protocol to exchange data. This session will explain what the Open Data Protocol (OData) is and how to create OData feeds using WCF Data Services.
  3. Not Just a Designer: Code First and Entity Framework Entity Framework 4 brought many new opportunities for building complex data driven applications. Code First is an Entity Framework capability that provides a code-centric experience for interacting with models and databases. This session will cover several Entity Framework features such as Code First, DbContext API and Migrations.

If you are attending the conference and would like to meet me, you can ping me on the blog’s contact form.

See you there!
