TVUG is proud to announce our first summer meeting with the return of John Pappa to Upstate New York. John's been working on a book tying data services with Silverlight 2, and he's been kind enough to give us a run through of a number of new technologies, and how they integrate together. This meeting will be held July 22nd in our standard location: our regular meeting schedule will resume in September, with a topic TBA.

Speaker:John Pappa, MVP, MSDN Columnist, INETA Speaker

Silverlight enables developers to use their .NET and XAML skills to develop Rich Internet Applications and to build data driven Silverlight applications that communicate with multi-tier architectures. This session will show how to build Silverlight 2 applications that communicate with and consume REST services and use LINQ to XML to manage XML content, show the various data binding techniques, and show how to use WCF to talk to various middle tier services including custom entity models and the Entity Framework.
