Recientemente se ha publicado en Channel 9 una entrevista de Ron Jacobs (WF/WCF Evangelist) a David Chappell durante el TechEd US del pasado mes de Junio. En esta entrevista, David hace un repaso acerca de qué es OSLO, qué productos se van a ver involucrados en esta “revolución” y cuándo podremos ir viendo algunas de estas novedades. Puedes encontrar información detallada al respecto en castellano en este post que redacté el pasado mes de Junio tras el anuncio oficial realizado en el Tech Ed.
Además, durante el próximo PDC de finales del mes de Octubre se realizarán las siguientes 8 sesiones técnicas sobre OSLO:
- “Oslo”: Managing Software + Services Applications: Increasingly, applications will consist of services that run both on-premises and in the cloud. Learn how Microsoft is simplifying the deployment and management of Software + Services applications
- Hosting Workflows and Services in “Oslo”: “Oslo” builds on Windows Workflow (WF) and Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) to provide a feature-rich middle-tier execution and deployment environment. Learn about the architecture of “Oslo” and the features that simplify deployment, management, and troubleshooting of workflows and services.
- “Oslo”: Customizing and Extending the Visual Design Experience: “Oslo” provides visual tools for writing data-driven applications and services. Learn how to provide a great experience over domain-specific schemas, and explore the basic user model, data-driven viewer construction, user-defined queries, and custom commands. See how the design experience itself is an “Oslo” application and is driven by content stored in the “Oslo” repository.
- Extending Windows Workflow Foundation v.Next with Custom Activities: Windows Workflow Foundation (WF) coordinates and manages individual units of work, encapsulated into activities. The next version of WF comes with a library of activities, including Database and PowerShell. Learn how to extend this library by encapsulating your own APIs with custom activities. See how to compose those basic activities into higher level units using rules, flowchart, or state machine control flow styles. Learn how to extend beyond WF control styles by building your own. Learn how to customize and re-host the workflow authoring experience using the new WF designer framework.
- A Lap around “Oslo”: “Oslo” is the family of new technologies that enable data-driven development and execution of services and applications. Come and learn how to capture all aspects of an application schematized in the “Oslo” repository and use “Oslo” directly to drive the execution of deployed applications.
- “Oslo”: The Language: “Oslo” provides a language for creating schemas, queries, views, and values. Learn the key features of the language, including its type system, instance construction, and query. Understand supporting runtime features such as dynamic construction and compilation, SQL generation, and deployment. Learn to author content for the “Oslo” repository and understand how to programmatically construct and process the content.
- “Oslo”: Repository and Schemas: “Oslo” uses schematized data stored in the “Oslo” repository to drive the development and execution of applications and services. Tour the schemas and see how user-defined content can be created and related to them. Learn how to utilize platform schemas, such as worflow, services, and hosting. Also, learn how to extend the repository and how to use repository-extended SQL database services to support critical lifecycle capabilities such as versioning, security, and deployment.
- Workflow Services: This session covers significant enhancements in Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) and Windows Workflow Foundation (WF) to deal with the ever increasing complexity of communication patterns. Learn how to use WCF to correlate messages to service instances using transport, context, and application payloads. Learn to use the new WF messaging activities to model rich protocols and how to use WCF as a rich default host for your workflows and expand the reach of WF with features like distributed compensation. See how service definition in XAML completes the union of WF and WCF with a unified authoring experience that dramatically simplifies configuration and is fully integrated with Microsoft Internet Information Services activation and deployment.
Ya queda menos, y seguro no defraudará a nadie 😉
