In this demo intensive session we take a look at improved support in Visual Studio 2010 for building distributed business applications. We focus on Visual Studio support for building rich client experiences with Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) and Microsoft Silverlight, creating and consuming WCF services, sharing business validation rules between client and server, implementing local caching of read-only data on the client, and sharing common application services like authentication and authorization between Windows and Web client applications. Visual Studio 2005 and Visual Studio 2008 raised the productivity bar for business application developers. Visual Studio 2010 builds on that foundation bringing unmatched productivity gains to distributed business application developers.
