Presentation: "Office in a World of Services and Mash - Ups: Building Composite Applications based on the Microsoft Office SharePoint Platform"

Time: Monday 14:40 - 15:30

Location: Kammermusik


The latest version of Windows SharePoint Services (WSS), v3.0, provides us with a framework for developing feature-rich, modular and modern web applications including support for blogs, WIKIS or even personalization. Built on top of WSS v3.0, Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 enables you to combine these possibilities with well-known capabilities of portals and composite applications in enterprise environments. Collaborative Content Management, Ad-Hoc Workflows, personalize-able dashboards are key buzzwords, of course all integrated with your existing IT infrastructure and services.

In this session you will learn about the architecture of the SharePoint and Office platform as well as their ability to combine modern paradigms from the web with enterprise-level requirements, effectively. You will even learn, how you can integrate SharePoint as a central information hub into a heterogeneous landscape of IT services based on a variety of mechanisms such as web services, the business data catalog or the ECMA/ISO Office Open XML File Formats. See, how SharePoint enables you building a platform for mash-ups in the Enterprise 2.0 world!

Workshop: "Understanding the ASP.NET Web Development Platform - From Rapid Prototyping up to Professional Applications"

Track: Tutorial

Time: Friday 09:00 - 17:00

Location: Musikhuset Nr. 222

Abstract: ASP.NET is Microsoft's web development platform included in the .NET Framework. The platform actually supports a variety of different development paradigms that you can use for creating different flavors of applications. While the foundation of the platform which deals with request-processing, state management or security is common, the platform supports a variety of development frameworks with different paradigms to support different needs and target groups. In this tutorial you will learn how you can use the different development frameworks depending on your needs and how you can combine them. You will take a the original ASP.NET web forms framework which favors a control-based model and simple separation of UI logic and presentation. Learn, how Dynamic Data Forms on one side address the needs of rapid prototyping with fast results. And finally see, how the ASP.NET MVC goes beyond the web forms framework with an implementation of the MVC pattern and therefore with a clear separation of concerns for the sake of reusability, maintainability and testability. In this tutorial you will touch the whole range of possibilities of the ASP.NET platform - check it out!
