180 slides da non perdere....

Lo so, 180 slides sono tante e anche 3 ore circa di presentazione sono tante, ma se le slides sono state scritte da Pat Helland (il papà di Microsoft Transaction Server) posso assicurarvi che ne vale la pena..

Qui trovate una serie molto, molto interessante di presentazioni (slides, video e voce). http://msdn.microsoft.com/architecture/overview/series/

Di cosa si parla?:

The Architecture Strategy Series

These presentations describe the architectural vision that drives the "Longhorn wave" of technologies from Microsoft, and introduce a set of key initiatives that will form the pillars of the Longhorn solution architecture. Perspectives range from the metaphorical to the pragmatic. At one end, Pat Helland relates the evolution of technology architectures to the evolution of city planning (and showing us how far we have yet to go!). At the other, John Dawson presents the proven data center patterns developed by the Microsoft Systems Architecture team. Explore these presentations to discover how Microsoft views the road ahead, and what tools and technologies Microsoft plans to deliver to help you blaze your own trail to a more felicitous, better integrated enterprise application portfolio.

La prima sessione è assolutamente un must:
Metropolis : Envisioning the Service-Oriented Enterprise
Presenter: Pat Helland, Architect, .NET Enterprise Architecture Team
Cities emerge one building at a time, but with the right planning codes the result can be more graceful and functional than anything one architect could conceive alone. Are services the Jerusalem stone of information technology, the facade that unites old and new to the benefit of all? What will an organizational technology portfolio look like in ten years time? How will advances in technology transform business and business processes? What are the key architectural patterns? What are the new limits? What do you set in motion today to anticipate the architecture of tomorrow?

E la seconda.... anche:

Information & Application Architecture for the Service-Oriented Enterprise
Presenters: Pat Helland, Architect, .NET Enterprise Architecture Team and Dave Campbell, Product Unit Manager, SQL
How do we model data in the new world order? What is its canonical representation, and how does this relate to "standard" entity schemas? How should we expose it, aggregate it, cache it, transform it, and synchronize it? Looks at XML, SQL, WINFS, and objects and offers guidance on which to use where. Addresses data design for real-time business intelligence.
