Join this series as we look at Microsoft SQL Server 2008 as a productive data platform. Throughout this series, we use Contoso (Container Overseas Shipping Operation) LTD as our scenario customer while we explore the features that make SQL Server 2008 this platform. Contoso is a shipping company; they arrange the shipping of all kinds of items around the globe, from small individual items to large manufactured items. Contoso has seen growth in its business over the past years, especially in the movement of goods from China around the world. While Contoso is happy with their in-house applications and believe they provide significant business advantage over competitors, Contoso wants to ensure that these applications are running on the best productive platform to maintain this advantage, especially as their business grows worldwide. In this webcast, we look at how Contoso LTD can take advantage of the Microsoft data platform to extend their applications. We concentrate on Microsoft .NET Language-Integrated Query (LINQ) and the ADO.NET Entity Framework with examples of how Contoso can use these technologies to access their data. Join us as we go into detailed coverage of data platform features, LINQ, and ADO.NET Entity Framework.
