Speaker: Mario Cardinal (Mario Cardinal Inc. )
Location: Gardener’s Supply
Topic: Introduction to Microsoft Enterprise Library and Application Blocks

Application Blocks are Microsofts implementation of reusable code (and documentation) that provide proven solutions for commonly recurring problems. Enterprise Library, to be released to the general public in early 2005, is the next generation of the Microsoft’s Application Blocks. The first release will deliver 6 Application Blocks into a single integrated package. This reusable code is a ready-to-use solution to solve problems that you often waste time solving over and over again in enterprise programming. This presentation provides a short introduction to the Microsoft Enterprise Library and shows what each block might be good for. The idea is to present the types of problems Enterprise Library try to solve and where to apply it in your own solutions.
