Heads up on upcoming articles/entries

Hi Everyone,

Next week I’m off to Sydney from Sunday to Tuesday night which means I might get some more posts done shortly. 

The majority of our unpacking is done which leaves me with a bit more time to plug away on the computer and continue to write some interesting technical articles.  In the meantime, I thought I’d give you all a heads up as to what to expect in the coming few weeks in terms of content.

Please leave a comment (or email me rob.sanders@gmail.com) if you’d like to see some content sooner rather than later (I’ve developed something of a backlog and I’d like to get entries out according to popularity).

I was thinking of converting one or two of these into public presentations for delivery later this year, but I’ll leave it up to community feedback to determine which are the more interesting and/or popular subjects. 

You get to decide!  Vote now!

  • ADO Entity Framework – Advanced Querying

  • What not to do: limitations, bugs and workarounds for LINQ to SQL

* So it looks like the SQL Data Services Team is revamping SDS and the ACE architecture is eventually going to be retired.
