Event ID: 1032399813
Language(s): English.
Product(s): Other.
Audience(s): Pro Dev/Programmer.

In DemoFest webcasts, we demonstrate an end-to-end solution that takes technologies and tools we discussed in other BenkoTips webcasts and applies them to create something fun. We look at some of the new features in Microsoft SQL Server 2008, including data types for spatial data, and how we can use these features to build interesting applications. We then take this functionality and expose it using a Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) service. Finally, we explore the software development kit (SDK) for Microsoft Virtual Earth and how we can build on top of this rich interactive platform using new Asynchronous JavaScript and XML (AJAX) and JavaScripting capabilities in Microsoft Visual Studio 2008. 
BenkoTips Live and On Demand brings events to you. This webcast series is dedicated to helping developers explore the possible. Join us each week as we take a look at what is new for developers, and see how to take advantage of the tools that developers use. From Microsoft Silverlight to Windows SharePoint Services, from the Microsoft .NET Framework to Visual Studio, from Internet Information Services (IIS) 7.0 to membership, we explore it all.
