Birds of a Feather (BOF) at PDC 2009

I’m excited to announce that I will be leading a BOF session at PDC 2009!  The topic is related to something we discussed at the Denver Visual Studio User Group a couple months ago.  At that meeting we talked about the issue of deciding on a front end technology for web applications.  There are a bunch of technologies out there and deciding on the right one can be overwhelming.  The nice thing about this topic is there really is not a right or wrong answer, which makes it perfect for a BOF session.  If you are going to PDC be sure to attend this session so we can discuss the topic as a community.  Here is a link to the details:

.NET Rx Framework – A New Way To Handle Asynchronous Programming

I literally just read this article and wanted to get it out here for people to read.  This article outlines some of the comments made by some of the people behind the technology.  Give it a quick read and go do some more research.  Here is a Bing search I did and there is a bunch of good info on it.  I don’t think it is ready for production currently.  However, I believe this is going to be a big part of VS 2010 and how we deal with the asynchronous nature of programming to services over a network.
