Connecticut .NET Developers Group Event (Tue Jan 29 6-8PM): 'Developing Seamless Database Applications with LINQ' - Polina Cherkasova (AVIcode Consulting).
Event to be held at Microsoft Farmington CT Office.
Please send an email RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org if you plan to attend - we need a Pizza/Soda count!
Microsoft Linq technology gives us the highly desirable possibility of easily combining object-oriented (OO) features (such as strong typing, classes, objects and methods) with the expressive power of the relational model and the performance of query evaluation directly in the underlying store.
The question is how to design database applications so that the power of Linq technology works for high-quality object-oriented design and powerful data flow, but doesn't provoke complexity and inconsistency in the application architecture or bottle necks in the data exchange functionality.
Polina Cherkasova is Software Architect in AVIcode Consulting LLC, the Hartford-based company specializing in the development of enterprise database applications. For more information, please visit: www.AVIcodeConsulting.com
The New Year saw Microsoft bestowing upon me the Most Valuable Professional (MVP) award for Groove. Thanks! I have been working very actively with Groove and its community since its beta days (June '01) when Ray Ozzie was at its helm (Microsoft acquired Groove in 2005).
