Technical Presentation

What’s New in CSLA .NET 3.5?

Speaker: Rockford Lhotka

CSLA .NET is one of the most widely used open-source development frameworks for .NET. Version 3.0 added support for WPF, WCF and WF, while version 3.5 adds support for LINQ, and perhaps more importantly, focuses on code reduction and simplification. In many cases a developer has to write 30-40% less code to create a business object than in past versions! In this session you will learn how CSLA .NET supports WCF for client/server and service-orientation, WPF for powerful new user experiences, WF for back-end workflow processing, LINQ for reshaping data and data access and more!
