After Linq to Sql Talk in Cork

September 23rd, 2008 by Sidar Ok

The talk last night was awesome. Thanks to all who showed up, there was a good turnout. Also thanks to Joe Gill and MTUG for organizing the event, and to Microsoft for sponsoring.

I had the great chance of sharing my thoughts, knowledge and experience on Linq to SQL, analyzing upsides and downsides of it. It was targeted for advanced audience, so I enjoyed talking to a bunch of geeks.

Here are the slides for the presentation. I also made a demo on how we can support Domain First Design and create POCOs with Linq to SQL, and didn’t have the time to do the second demo on a short multi tier development demonstration. You can find them here in rar format.

It is always great to have good techies around you, and free beers along with chicken wings !!

This was the beginning event of the year and I am honored to have done it. Hope this will encourage more people to share the views and experiences on subject matters.

    SQL Metal to rescue

    What it does, what it lacks

  9. Understanding DataContext

Talking on Linq to SQL on 22nd of September

September 5th, 2008 by Sidar Ok

I am going to be talking about Linq to SQL, one of the ORM mappers coming out of Redmond. I am planning to cover how to utilize Linq to SQL to get the best benefit out of it, Linq to SQL’s place in the ORM world and pros-cons and of course ways to apply patterns and practices with a couple of demos.  I’ll be more than happy to see any of you there and do some geek chat , and have a couple of pints. Pints and chicken tenders are free and Microsoft’s courtesy (Himm, free tenders…That is more appealing then the talk…tenders…)

Registration is free through this link : http://www.cork.mtug.ie/Events/EventInfo.aspx?ID=b2515894-866f-4d70-8c87-ebaa69c69b7d
