Using Microsoft SQL Azure as a Datahub to Connect Microsoft SQL Server and Silverlight Clients
In this session we demonstrate how the Sync Framework is being used to enable a new series of exciting scenarios made possible by SQL Azure. First, we demonstrate how the Sync Framework is being integrated with SQL Server to make it easy to extend data to SQL Azure in only a few clicks. We then show how customers can drop down to lower levels in the stack in an effort to customize the behavior of that data movement without having to rebuild the application from the ground up. Finally, we demonstrate how the Sync Framework is being enhanced to expand our offline client-side reach beyond traditional Windows Presentation Foundation/Winforms applications by adding support for Microsoft Silverlight, HTML 5, Windows Phone 7, and other devices such as an iPhone.
