Houston Technology Summit Powered by Infragistics November 11 Sara Faatz / Monday, October 18, 2010 If you are in the Houston area on Thursday, November 11, please plan to join us for a FREE seminar at Microsoft Houston to learn about building rich data visualizations and high performance line of business applications with a user-centered approach in Silverlight 4. You have two opportunities to see the same great content - 8:00 a.m. till noon or 1:00 p.m. till 5:30 p.m. Sign up for the session that works best for you at http://houstontechnologysummit.eventbrite.com/. Our very own Dr. Tobias Komishke and Jason Beres will be presenting on the following topics: User-Centered Data VisualizationDr. Tobias Komischke“Get rid of numbers and get me some graphics!” Data Visualization is an ongoing trend in the industry because presenting data graphically allows for quicker understanding for those who interpret the data. Yet, from a usability angle some visualization forms are better suited than others for specific questions and uses. Also, applying standard software ergonomic rules like color treatments, label orientation, etc. can significantly boost the effectiveness of visualization. This presentation provides an overview of the topic and shows through many examples what you should look for when designing data visualizations. Enterprise RIA’s and Data Visualization with Silverlight 4Jason BeresIn this code focused talk (no slides, really!), you will learn first-hand how to take advantage of Silverlight 4 and Visual Studio 2010 to build rich data visualizations, high performing line of business applications and effective geospatial scenarios. Silverlight 4 features like trusted out of browser installation, local file system access, and peripheral device access combined with powerful line of business capabilities like high performance data grids and rich charting in the Infragistics NetAdvantage Silverlight toolsets are just a few of the necessary features you will learn about that any line of business application needs. You’ll also see how RIA Services can simplify the data access story for your applications, and how you can easily get data from a database as well as update and delete data in master-detail scenarios. What’s more, that same evening Jason will be presenting at the Houston .NET User Group also at Microsoft Houston. I’ll post more on that (and he will probably too) as we get a little closer – but make sure you mark your calendar for that one as well! If you have any questions, please contact me (email@example.com). I hope to see you in Houston November 11!
