Josh Twist NxtGenUG, WPF and Data Binding
WPF has changed the game when it comes to data presentation and visualisation. The innovative data-binding engine, combined with the templating model offer unparalleled productivity in creating enhanced user experiences. During this session we'll take a whirlwind tour of data-binding and templates before diving into some of the more advanced features and discovering how many of the existing WPF controls can be leveraged in interesting ways.

Oliver Sturm Handling data in F#
Microsoft's "new" language F# is a hybrid that brings functional programming techniques together with object-oriented approaches and metaprogramming ideas. It is possible to use LINQ to work with data, which seems to make things easy for some of us. In the traditional FP world, data storage is considered an (undesirable?) side effect, and so there are techniques like storing data in functions and optimizing execution using memoization that might influence programming with data in F#. After a quick F# primer, this session provides an overview of the topic from different angles.
Mike Taulty Understanding ADO.NET Data Services
In this session we’ll take a look at building RESTful services with the forthcoming ADO.NET Data Services (formerly code-named “Astoria”). We’ll look at how to surface data with the framework and how to build both .NET and AJAX clients.

Daniel Moth's last official engagement, before heading off to Redmond, is a NxtGenUG Nugget - Entitled the "SwanSong Nugget" - We give Daniel a Free reign for 10 minutes to talk about any technology. I'm sure there won't be a dry eye in the house at the end of this one.
