As always, thanks to those of you who attended. You can find the deck here:
The Surface 1.0 videos are there as well.
Some of my code demos came from other sources:
Don’t forget that these resources have tons of samples, slides, hands on labs, etc.
The demos I wrote (mostly the .NET 4.0 and touch demos) need a little clean up, organization, etc. before I make them public. I’ll blog about them soon.
Joe Healy has some additional .NET samples here. Some of my stuff was inspired by Joe. Also, a shout out to Jared Bienz. The Sensor and Location demo I showed was a modified version of the Hands On Lab he wrote that’s in the latest release of the Windows 7 Training Kit.
Also, there is a new set of videos collectively titled Windows 7 New Features for Managed Code Developers:
I haven’t had a chance to review them, but I don’t believe these videos cover .NET 4.0. I think it is all 3.5 SP1.
As I mentioned, keep an eye out for next month’s dinner. We will be announcing it soon. The topic will be SharePoint 2010 from a developer’s perspective. As I mentioned last night, I never really warmed up to SharePoint development until now. To me, SharePoint 2010 is the first version that feels familiar and approachable for the typical ASP.NET developer. I hope to convey that at the next dinner.
As always, if you or your company do work for the US Government, are looking to adopt any of the new Windows 7 features in your applications, and want to some help from our team of evangelists, then feel free to contact us through our team blog:
