Are you always under pressure to develop and deploy your software products on time? Choosing the right tools lets you rapidly prototype your ideas, present them to key decision makers and win the bid. If O-R Mapping and refactoring keep you awake at night, then object databases will let you sleep like a baby. Be Agile. Save the mapping. Deliver on time.

In this session, you will learn how to achieve simple, straight forward object persistence without the need to deal with complex APIs. We will demonstrate how to build a simple HTML5 game with a lightweight AJAX service to store player data. We'll use familiar standards like LINQ, jQuery, and REST, and we'll do it using a lean persistence library thanks to an Open-Source Object Database: Versant's db4o.

You will learn:

  • How to build an HTML5 game with leaderboards using familiar technologies like AJAX, jQuery, Web Services, REST, and JSON.
  • Take a peek at implementing a .NET persistence web service with the most popular embedded open-source object database for .NET: db4o
  • To achieve simple object persistence without the need to deal with complex APIs.
  • About Object Databases and how they fit into the data storage landscape with Relational and NoSQL solutions.

Visual Studio 11: Turning Ideas into Software

The world of software today is defined by the word “Experience”. You can see it in the way people have adopted new experiences for devices of different form factors, you can see it in how people want to experience their information and you can see it in the context of how people interact to build software solutions. Regardless of the solution you’re building, the fundamental need for a compelling experience exists. In Visual Studio 11, Microsoft aims to ensure that developers have all the tooling to create compelling user experiences, an IDE that sets a new bar for the developer experience and a family of products dramatically improves the team experience for everyone.
