Code Camp Presentation Change

18. April 2006 05:58

I had previously posted about the presentations that I would be giving at the Alabama Code Camp.  Unfortunately, I have been forced to cancel my presentation regarding Windows Live Messenger.  I simply wasn't able to dedicate sufficient time for completing the type of rich examples that I wanted to demonstrate, especially around the use of the Conversagent SDK and Messenger Activity API.  I hope to complete my original examples and post them online at a later date.

In the meantime, I will be replacing my Messenger presentation with a session about mashups.  It will be entitled: Mash-Ups 101: Aggregating Content from Different Sources.  We will discuss the key concepts of mash-ups such as consuming and exposing data in a component-oriented manner using technologies such as Atlas and web services.  However, I don't want this to turn into another Atlas presentation.  I intend to concentrate on discussing mash-ups from an architectural perspective rather than spending half the time just looking at Atlas code snippets.

I will still be delivering my presentation about Windows Live Search Macros.
