Deploying Silverlight Based Web Parts with SharePoint 2007

Track / Area: Developer / Applications – Silverlight
Technology: Silverlight, SharePoint
General / Specific Experience Level: Beginner / Beginner

In this session, we will discuss the steps required to deploy Silverlight based web parts.  This session is aimed at administrators and developers new to SharePoint and Silverlight development.  While we will discuss some of the code so that you are aware what is going on behind the scenes, most of this session will be the various ways to deploy and configuration of the web parts, attaching them to an RSS feed and/or how to configure a list for use by the web part.  We will also discuss how to modify the web part’s source code in order to make it configurable in the properties pane of the web part configuration instead of having to mess with an XML file or crack open the code to make changes.  I will be providing the source code to the news ticker web part I have developed for this demo.

Introduction to Windows Phone 7 Series

Track / Area: Developer / Mobile

A lap around the new Windows Phone 7 Series platform – what has changed since Windows 6.x Phone development, overview of the security model, application stack (Silverlight and XNA), hub integration, Push notifications and how to get setup in the Windows Phone Marketplace.

Developing for Windows Phone 7 Series with Silverlight

Track / Area: Developer / Mobile
Technology: Windows Phone, Silverlight
General / Specific Experience Level: Intermediate / Beginner

Windows Phone development with 6.5 and previous versions was not the easiest transition to make from desktop client development – see how any Silverlight developer can now share code with desktop based Silverlight applications and be able to target Windows Phone 7 with minimal changes.  In this session we will go over a few demo applications, build a simple application and discuss what is not available on the Phone stack (in the CTP release) that is available in the Silverlight 3/4 for the Desktop and how to plan for differences in your application and security models.
