Getting ready for my DotNetNuke OpenForce 2008 presentations

Well according to the countdown clock on my web site I have about 50 days before I am scheduled to give two presentations at the DotNetNuke OpenForce 08 in Las Vegas starting November 10th.

Here is an outline of what I am working on...

  • Using SilverlightDesktop for DotNetNuke
  • Creating a module for SilverlightDesktop for DotNetNuke (Vacation Request module that uses Windows Workflow Foundation)
DMD203: Using LINQ to SQL for Rapid DotNetNuke Module Development
LINQ to SQL allows for rapid DotNetNuke module development. This session will explore using LINQ to SQL and databinding patterns to reduce the amount of code needed when creating data-driven modules.
  • What Linq to SQL will and won’t do
    • Will cut your development time by as much as 80%
    • Will not support the DotNetNuke object qualifier setting in the web.config
  • Creating a simple Guestbook using Linq to SQL
    • Package the module
    • Deploy The module to Production
  • Development tools to use
    • LinqPad
    • VS 2008 Debugger
  • Create the Vacation Request module (uses Windows Workflow Foundation)
    • Using the LinqDataSource control
      • Overriding the LinqDataSource control
