Presenting for BSDA on Thu Sept 11

9. September 2008 03:10

I meant to blog about this last month, and it completely slipped my mind.  On Thursday, September 11, I will be presented for the Birmingham Software Developer Association.  The meeting will convene at 6:30 PM at New Horizons.  I will be delivering a presentation that provides an overview of the major features in Enterprise Library 4.0.  Obviously, due to the breadth of functionality, this will be a high level survey that only gives a teaser of what Enterprise Library has to offer.

Here is the abstract:

Enterprise Library is a collection of application blocks provided by the Microsoft Patterns & Practice Team.  These application blocks are essentially "infrastructure modules" that can be used "as is", extended, or modified to assist with solving common development challenges such as database access, logging, validation, and more.  In this presentation, we will survey the major features that Enterprise Library has to offer by taking a look at both pros and cons of the most commonly used application blocks.
