I wanted to point you to some video webcasts on the Microsoft Sync Framework and Sync Services for ADO.NET which are now available for download. If you would like to watch them online, you can alternatively go to our Sync Developer Page and click on the appropriate videos.
Introduction to Microsoft Sync Framework – Synchronization Framework for Enabling Roaming, Offline, and Collaboration Across Devices, Services & Apps
In this session we will introduce Sync Framework. Attendees will learn about the capabilities of the sync platform and see a demonstration of multi-master synchronization across devices and services. We will use this demonstration to guide our walk through of the key components involved in building an application using Microsoft Sync Framework. Finally we will provide a glimpse into upcoming Microsoft products which will ship with out of the box support for Microsoft Sync Framework.
Implementing Solutions that Leverage Sync Framework to Provide Synchronization Capabilities Across Devices, Services and Application
This session will focus on the steps a developer needs to take to incorporate synchronization into their application or services. First we will demonstrate how an existing line of business application can easily add synchronization support to allow users to work offline. Next we will describe the steps involved in building a service which exposes synchronization over FeedSync using Microsoft Sync Framework. We will briefly describe how support for Microsoft Sync Framework has been added for applications or services using file system or Microsoft SQL Server.
Introduction to Sync Services for ADO.NET and the Visual Studio Designer
In this session we will introduce Sync Services for ADO.NET which is a part of the Microsoft Sync Framework. Specifically, we will discuss how Sync Services for ADO.NET enables synchronization of information between database systems and how Sync Services for ADO.NET helps developers avoid many of the common issues associated with taking data offline.
