Thank you Microsoft for this birthday gift :-)

We are now attending the keynote and the new platform is now being announced and demonstrated on stage. First real app was the

Branding for the new platform is simple and glues many things we have been discussing in the past (e.g. Dreamway FeedSync session).

In November David Chappell is coming to Lisbon for an Architecture meeting and, until then, you can read his latest paper here: Azure_Services_Platform.docx

Dreamway - Steve Balmer talks to the Portuguese Developers, Developers, Developers, ...

I'm back on stage since leaving Microsoft and although my life is a little overbooked with work+mba+family, I was very happy to join my old team and present my views around the impact of Synchronization on the next wave of Software+Services applications. Here is the abstract from the session:chaves

Dev04: Sync Framework: O motor genérico e extensível para a nova geração de aplicações S+S distribuídas, online e offline.
José António Silva

A Microsoft Sync Framework é uma plataforma extensível que vem tornar mais simples a criação de processos de replicação de informação entre diferentes tipos de arquivo. Nesta Sessão vamos explorar a última versão, já com suporte SQL 2008 (Change Data Capture), fontes de dados FeedSync/AtomPub e para comunicações P2P. Ainda vamos analisar o roadmap deste tipo de subsistema nas novas aplicações S+S/Cloud, no contexto do SQL Server Data Services (Codename “Sitka”) entre outros serviços Live/Online.

The presentation is now available for download and, although it’s a mix of stuff from many sources, my objective was exactly to glue together some of things going on pre-PDC08. After the PDC it will be more clear why I selected these topics.

After these first 3 months adapting to my new lifestyle, this nice event with Steve Balmer was a great opportunity to meet my colleagues from Microsoft. Chaves (in the photo) is now an intern and responsible for the community server, a must for technology students!

Thanks everyone that attended my session, and a special THANK YOU to Luis Alves Martins and João Pedro Martins that joined the nice translucent couches and added very good perspectives to our presentation.
