This year’s Øredev will definitely improve your efficiency working with the .NET platform. By revisiting current technology such as WCF, LINQ, ASP.NET and WPF with new insights and experience will benefit your current projects. This combined with sessions on the upcoming .NET framework 4 and Visual Studio 2010, spanning from desktop clients to cloud computing, will prepare you for a more efficient today and tomorrow.
The .NET track will feature well known speakers from both the Microsoft and non-Microsoft communities as well as the .NET blogosphere. With such great contributors as Scott Hansleman, Julie Lerman, Juval Löwy, Oren Eini among others will truly make Øredev a source of inspiration. There will plenty of opportunities for the .NET developer to share knowledge with speakers and attendees in chalk talks, lightning talks, BoF’s, workshops and tutorials throughout the conference.
Correlated sub queries, join strategies, and other advanced topics will be the focus in this session on writing advanced LINQ queries against objects, and relational data. We will also explore some of the lesser-known LINQ operators that we can use in common development scenarios, and provide practical demonstrations of optimizing LINQ queries.

Responding to change is the holy grail of software development. Inversion of Control (IoC) and Dependency Injection (DI) are two related patterns that allows to make significant changes to an application without having to touch every part of the application. IoC and DI encourage breaking the application into discerete, highly cohesive parts, so a change, when it eventually comes, is very local. A nice benefit is that applications that uses IoC are also very testable applications.
His main focus is on architecture and best practices that promote quality software and zero-friction development. Oren is the author of Rhino Mocks, one of the most popular mocking frameworks on the .NET platform, and is also a leading figure in other well known open source projects including the Castle project and NHibernate.
He is the author of the book "Building Domain Specific Languages with Boo", soon to be published by Manning.
How do you combine a designer's vision with the requirements of productive software? Left brain/Right brain workflow is a sophisticated problem that impacts us all but has no easy answers. However, with Blend 3, Sketchflow, Visual Studio 2010, Silverlight 3 and WPF 4, things are getting better. Come hear about design/developer workflow with Microsoft tools from the author of the seminal white paper; The New Iteration: How XAML Transforms the Collaboration Between Designers and Developers.

Having the customer on your back to deliver features on time and under budget with tight deadlines can make you feel like you’re being chased by ninjas on fire. In this talk we’ll walk through several tips and tricks to get the most out of the ASP.NET MVC framework and deliver work quickly and with style. Come join the PM and lead developer for the ASP.NET MVC Framework as they walk through how to leverage and make the most of several key features of the ASP.NET MVC Framework.
Scott Hanselman works out of his home office for Microsoft as a Principal Program Manager, aiming to spread good information about developing software, usually on the Microsoft stack. Before this he was the Chief Architect at Corillian Corporation, now a part of Checkfree, for 6 years. He was also involved in a few Microsoft things for many years like the MVP and RD programs and will speak about computers (and other passions) whenever someone will listen.
One of the problems with software development today is the disconnect between what we development and what the intent of a system is. It is too difficult for non-technical stakeholders to validate that a system will provide the intention of the project. In this talk I will walk through that problem and how Oslo will solve it.
