    @Sampy:Demos of what? Devil

     

    Edit: Ok, so why are the emoticons all wrong? The emoticon picker has all the right nine guy icons, but when the post is made, they switch over to messenger style icons.

    Well, it looks like the session 'Silverlight Session Placeholder' by Joe Stegman has disappeared from the list, or is it just my eyesight?

    I can only find these 'placeholders' in the list now:

    Migrating and Building Apps for Windows Azure by Mohit Srivastava

    In this session you will learn how to run your existing applications on Windows Azure using some of the new features that we’ll announce during the keynote.

    Lessons Learned from Moving a Major Microsoft Application to the Cloud

    This will be a fascinating session about moving a major Microsoft application to the cloud, but we can’t disclose any details until after PDC keynotes. Check this abstract after PDC keynote for additional details about this session.

    Enabling New Scenarios and Applications with Data in the Cloud by Dave Campbell

    The cloud enables new scenarios for sharing and consuming data. In this session you will learn how to differentiate your applications by building them on top of Windows Azure platform and leveraging visualization and access to private, public and premium content available through Microsoft Codename “Dallas”. You will also learn how to use some of the new services and features announced at the PDC.

    Hey, maybe that new colour NOOK will run Silverlight?  How cool would that be? (OK Unlikely, but lets keep the ideas coming ...)

        Along with the listed sessions for SQL Azure there are a few sessions about our new announcements that are not currently listed. Stay tuned on this blog (we have an RSS feed) and our twitter account (@sqlazure) for the times, and places for those sessions.

    currently there are many speakers appear in the PDC Speakers list but with no sessions assigned to, most of them are related to the Windows Azure/SQL Azure/Dallas projects. Smiley

    OK, here we go:

    Microsoft Sync Framework 4.0 October 2010 CTP
    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=afd89099-d589-423c-9762-78096aa95ac2

    The Microsoft Sync Framework 4.0 October 2010 CTP is built on top of Sync Framework 2.1. It defines Odata + Sync, a sync protocol that makes it easy to build offline applications on any client platform capable of caching data. The CTP enables synchronization of data stored in Sql Server/Sql Azure over an open standard network format by a remote synchronization service handling all sync specific computations. Moving all synchronization logic off the client enables clients, which do not have the Sync Framework runtime installed, to cache data and participate in a synchronization topology. Earlier versions of Sync Framework required Windows systems with Sync Framework runtime installed on them as clients. This CTP allows other Microsoft platforms such as Silverlight, Windows Phone 7, and Windows Mobile and non-Microsoft platforms such as HTML5, iPhone, Android and other devices with no Sync Framework runtime installed on them as clients.

    more stuff:

    Windows Azure Marketplace DataMarket Add-in for Excel (CTP1)
    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=cadf2afd-b488-4644-b26e-b879fc9347e7

    Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 - PowerPivot for Microsoft Excel 2010 - RTM
    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=e081c894-e4ab-42df-8c87-4b99c1f3c49b

        Note:Windows Azure Marketplace DataMarket is one stop shop for, trusted premium and public domain data. The DataMarket section brings data, imagery and real-time services from leading commercial data providers and authoritative public data sources.

    Well, they are using the name 'Windows Azure Maketplace DataMarket', instead of 'Codename Dallas', does this mean Dallas will enter beta and get a name ?

    there are also updated version of WCF Data Services/WCF RIA Services/AppFabric SDK etc.
