Assuming nobody at Microsoft Australia rolls over in bed tonight and changes their mind, I’m pleased to announce that I’ll be presenting at TechEd Australia this year.
The official session blurb (missing a zillion ™ and ® symbols) is:
Utilising Windows Live Web Services Today
Windows Live represents a collection of opportunities to integrate with a new generation of online services. This session provides an overview of the Windows Live family – outlining the business and technical advantages, the range of integration options that exist for each service, real world examples and live demos.
My plan is to focus on:
- Live ID
- what’s available now
- an overview of how to integrate it with demo (partly pre-cooked)
- why to integrate (stats on number of users)
- what integration options exist
- what integration options exist (activities / bots)
- why to integrate
- control vs. API
- demo of the Windows Live Data API
- I’ve been building out a library in this space which makes it easy to call from.NET – will hopefully be releasing this open source soon
- less here – John + Bronwen will cover this in their session
- overview + show some of the partner sites already out there
Other topics that could also be covered:
- Live Toolbar Custom Buttons
- how to build them
- I’ve been building out a library in this space which makes them really easy to publish from ASP.NET – will hopefully be releasing this open source soon too
- been around a while so probably not do much more than mention them
If you’re interested in know more about the Windows Live family, or don’t really understand what live is about, come along and check it out. If there’s anything you can think of that you’d especially like to see, drop me a note and I’ll try and get it in.
See you on the Gold Coast!
