Lino Tadros in Oz!

It will be a full day workshop and include the usual refreshments and luncheon, but as with all ADUG events it is priced to break even, which means that the cost to you is a fraction of that of a commercial workshop of this stature.

Workshops will be held in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide in the week ending November 21. Details of venues here, and the day's schedule is here.

Numbers are limited at each venue, and we expect that latecomers will miss out, so please book as early as you can. Early bird discounts apply until October 22.

Details of workshop venues here.

Introduction to .NET CLR

The Common Language Runtime is the most important part of the .NET Framework. Discover the different capabilities of the CLR as far as the Garbage Collector, JIT Compiler, Class Loader, Resource handler and other internal details of how the CLR operates.

Introduction to .NET FCL

The .Net Framework Class Library (FCL) is a vast collection of thousands of types (that is, of classes, interfaces, structures, delegates, and enumerations) that aim at encapsulating the functionality of core systems and applications services in order to make application programming easier and faster. This session introduces you to the elegance of the System hierarchy of classes in FCL and demonstrates powerful examples of how to develop using the FCL.

Data Providers in .NET Development

ADO.NET is the new set of classes that expose data access services to the .NET programmer. Go behind the scenes of the design motivations behind ADO.NET and explore an introduction to the two layers of the ADO.NET and explore an introduction to the two layers of the ADO.NET object model – Managed Providers and DataSets. You’ll also understand the integration of ADO.NET with the XML framework and how Visual Studio .NET differs from C# Builder in its support of managed providers to databases.

ASP.NET Development

ASP.NET makes building real-world Web applications dramatically easier. ASP.NET server controls enable an HTML-like style of declarative programming that lets you build great pages with far less code than with classic ASP. Displaying data, validating user input, and uploading files are now a snap. This session will introduce you to the world of ASP.NET and demonstrate its improved performance and scalability, enhanced reliability, easy deployment, and rich class framework.

Creating Custom .NET Components

Extend the .NET Framework component hierarchy by creating custom .NET components. In addition to describing the steps involved in creating a new .NET component, this session will focus on several key aspects of the .NET component architecture, including the .NET Component Model, the new graphics subsystem (GDI+), user controls and custom controls, and supporting events through delegates.

Mobile Development with .NET

NET Remoting

The .Net Remoting framework provides a rich set of classes that allow developers to ignore most of the complexities of deploying and managing remote objects. This session discusses the different activation models (Server side and Client Side) and demonstrates the use of serializable objects. Other topics include extending the system through custom channels, formatters, and sink objects.
