Abstract: Building Business Applications with Silverlight 4, RIA Services and VS2010

Learn how to build n-tier Rich Internet Applications (RIA) on Silverlight by tapping the power of WCF RIA Services. Walk you through an example of building an application from scratch using the pattern run-time components and tools provided by RIA Services. See how it helps you write application logic to expose data and operations in a carefully controlled fashion using tools integrated into Visual Studio with support for validation, authentication, authorization and handling units of work. We will also cover how to componentize your application so it can be incrementally downloaded using the Managed Extensions Framework. 

As always, we'll have our special "Hatzilu" session at our meeting. So please come prepared to discuss your most frustrating problems (or at least some of them!) and to share some of your own techniques and solutions that you have found useful in your applications.
