MIX07 Session Videos with LINQ, EF, or VB[x] Hooks - Part 2

The MIX07 team released this morning an update to yesterday's RSS feed for MIX07 Session Feeds that's the subject of MIX07 Session Videos with LINQ, Entity Framework, or VB[x] Hooks [Part 1].

The video for the Sam Druker and Shyam Pather "Jasper" session is available for viewing or dowload at the following link:

DEV18 - Rapidly Building Data Driven Web Pages with Dynamic ADO.NET

Speakers: Samuel Druker - Microsoft, Shyam Pather - Microsoft Audience: Developer

Come learn about how new technologies from Microsoft bring together the concepts of dynamic languages and ADO.NET and allow you to quickly develop data driven Web pages using ASP.NET dynamic data controls, scalable to even the most complex databases.

Following is the link for Pablo Castro's "Astoria" session video:

XD006 - Accessing Data Services in the Cloud Speaker: Pablo Castro - Microsoft Audiences: Designer, Developer

Come learn about new Microsoft technologies that enable you to make your data available over the Web through a simple REST interface and using open formats such as plain XML, JSON or even RDF. We also discuss the underlying entity framework that makes it easy to model, publish, and program against your data over the Web.

Alex Barnett's Microsoft Codename "Astoria": Data Services for the Web provides a basic description of Astoria and its URI syntax, including its more popular operators. He's also posted an interview with Pablo on YouTube and some pithy quotes from industry luminaries about Astoria. (Alex was working on Astoria when he left Microsoft in 2006.)

And here's the Aaron Dunnington and Tim Scudder session video:

DEV16 - Deep Dive on Data Driven Experiences Speakers: Aaron Dunnington - Microsoft, Tim Scudder - Microsoft Audience: Developer

Come learn how technologies like Silverlight, Language INtegrated Query (LINQ), and SQL Server 2005 can help developers build impactful, dynamic applications that reach the broadest possible audience.

Aaron and Tim have created Socializer, a Silverlight UI that demonstrates:

  • The Silverlight 1.1 Alpha client
  • LINQ to Objects in Silverlight 1.1
  • LINQ to XML in future Silverlight CTPs
  • Semantic Web
  • Data binding, querying, and aggregation
  • A socially-aware rich Internet application (RIA) that includes personal content aggregated from MySpace,, and Flickr.

You can run the Socializer client from this link on the Silverlight Community site (requires installing the Silverlight 1.1 Alpha, which might require a reboot) and download the Socializer source. You also can run the Silverlight Airlines flight booking client that Scott Guthrie demoed during the keynote and download its source code.

I'll add more text and a few screen captures later today.
