The SharePoint Technology Conference (aka SPTechCon) is heading back to Boston this coming October. I absolutely love Boston and I'm looking forward to presenting a few sessions at this show:
Interacting with SharePoint off the Server: Introducing the Client Object ModelThis session demonstrates the client-object model, new to SharePoint 2010. This addition makes it much easier for developers to create custom solutions that leverage data stored in SharePoint from off the SharePoint server with a familiar API and without traditional Web Services. Topics covered include the .NET and Silverlight managed client-object models, as well as the ECMAScript object model.
Creating Rich Business Applications with the Managed ClientOMSharePoint 2010 introduces a new way to work with SharePoint data when you have an application that does not run on the server: the Client Object Model (ClientOM). In this session, you'll see how to create rich desktop applications with WPF and the .NET ClientOM. In addition, see how to create robust business applications deployed as sandbox solutions using the Silverlight ClientOM.
Make sure you register early... should be a great show!
