Dedicated Data Access track at DevConnections Las Vegas in November!

I’m very excited about the Data Access track at DevConnections this fall.

Generally, people don’t know what to do with data access sessions. Do they go into Visual Studio Connections? ASP Connections? SQL Server Connections? They belong everywhere! Whenever I’m submitting ADO.NEt talks for a conference I struggle with deciding which track to choose, because it belongs in most of them.

So we built a single track with nothing but Data Access talks and it’s a rock start line-up!

You’ll find the talks listed under the ASP Connections Sessions and the Visual Studio Connections Sessions (look for Microsoft Day Visual Studio section for the MS talks, and Data Access Track for the 3rd part speaker talks).

Thanks to all of the conference chairs, conference staff, speakers and folks on the Data Programmability Team at Microsoft who have helped bring this about.
