At PDC09 Windows Bootcamp (Monday 11/16) Doing Table Top Demos of ASP.NET Dynamic Data

Updated: at 11:17 PM

Microsoft’s big developer conference (PDC happens about every other year when Microsoft has big announcements.  Turns out, there was one last year, and for the first time ever, they are having a second one in row this year.  Reason is because of large announcements from Microsoft including Windows 7.

The conference is Tuesday through Friday.  On Monday, there are special invents, usually full day in nature.  I’ve been asked to participate in the Windows 7 Bootcamp on Monday showing some of the new technology that is available from Microsoft.


My little piece is to talk about the new Dynamic Data Feature built into  Basically, what Dynamic Data gives you in a nut shell is the ability to easily make web apps easier for showing all kind of different data types.

For example, if you happen to have a picture stored with each user’s profile, Dynamic Data gives you a straight forward, easy to implement way of uploading and displaying that data in a standard ASP.NET control like GridView, ListView, DetailsView, etc.  Another example is that say you have a “State” field that is 2 characters long in your database.  Dynamic Data allows you to have validation for that with practically no code.

Dynamic Data is truly one of the most innovative developer technologies Microsoft has brought out IMHO.

Hope to see you there.
