Microsoft DevDays 2010 in Cyprus!

A few weeks ago I got asked to present on Microsoft DevDays 2010 in Cyprus. DevDays is the biggest event in Cyprus for Software Architects and Developers.

This year, the event features many hot topics such as:
  • Visual Studio 2010
  •  Windows Azure and Windows Identity Framework
  •  Interoperability and how to run PHP Applications on Microsoft Platform
  •  ...and much more!
I will be presenting the session with topic: "An Introduction to the ADO.NET Entity Framework and Data Services".  This session is all about data! It discusses how data can be easily accessed and manipulated using the ADO .NET Entity Framework and then how this data can be exposed to the Web using the powerful WCF Data Services.

So if it happens and you are in Cyprus on April 15, make sure you register for the event here and stop by for learning more on state of the art Microsoft technologies! The weather in cyprus is quite good as well! :)

Of course, if you are in another country in Central or Eastern Europe, a DevDays event might be taking place near you! Check out this link for more information!

See you at the event!
