In this screen cast I demonstrates the new Sync Designer for caching data locally in SQL Server Compact Edition.  This is part 1 showing the basics.  In part 2 I'll demonstrate how to split the code from client to server using WCF to synchronize data across internet protocols.

    Great feature. Should really make sync a lot easier. I can think of many projects which will benefit from this as soon as we have a proper beta.

    There are a couple of problems with the video.

    1) It doesn't fill the frame - there is a lot of black space around the picture.

    2) There's only about 15 minutes of video in a 25 minute file.

    Thanks simon.  When I added the image at the end of the screen cast it was accidently captured at a higher resolution and when I encoded the screencast it reduced the Visual Studio portion.  The blank space at the end was another mistake.  I originally had this as one screen cast, and split it in two.  Apparently I didn't fix the timeline. 
    I'll see if I can re-do it soon.  I did fix this in part 2...
