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:
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 http://goZoomIn.com 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.
