ASP.NET Dynamic Data Quickie: Using an Entity Data Model from a Class Library

I have been going around Texas giving a talk on ASP.NET Dynamic Data and got a follow up question: “If my Entity Data Model is in a class library, how to I get ASP.NET Dynamic Data to see it?” I thought I would put together a quick video explaining the steps. Here is the video: And if you wanted to see the original presentation here you go!

We Are Microsoft 2010: Thank you

I would like to thank all those that helped put the event together, most notably Toi Wright and Chris Koenig. I had a wonderful team (Cedric, Jag, and Rick) without whom this project would have never been completed. I also have to give a big thank you to Paddy who works with the charity, as she spent many hours with me prior to the event figuring out the requirements.

Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate IntelliTrace by Chris Tullier @ Dallas .NET Users Group on 1/14/2010

Abstract: Traditional debuggers show you the state of your application at the current time with limited information about events that occurred in the past. You must either infer events that occurred in the past, based on the state of your application at the current time, or restart the application to re-create past events. With IntelliTrace, you can actually see events that occurred in the past and the context in which they occurred. This reduces the number of restarts that are required to debug your application and the possibility that an error will fail to reproduce when you rerun the application....

Modeling with “Oslo” by Stuart Celarier @ D/FW Connected Systems User Group on 1/13/2010

SQL Server Modeling still contains textual and graphical modeling tools and a language for modeling data and creating domain specific languages (DSL) and is still being developed by the Connected Systems team. It is a good choice for building enterprise-level data-driven applications and it is also contains general-purpose technology for raising the level of abstraction for creating other types of systems. We'll explore where "Oslo" has...
