PDC05 Highlights Press Release Already Out

Posted by David Hunter at 12:31 PM ET.

Bill Gates’ keynote is still going on, but the press release is already out. Big themes:

- Office 12
- Windows Vista
- New Platform Technologies:

• “Atlas” is the code name for a Web client framework for building Asynchronous JavaScript and XML (AJAX)-style applications using Dynamic HTML (DHTML), XML and script. Well integrated with Visual Studio® 2005 and ASP.NET 2.0, “Atlas” simplifies development of richer and more interactive Web applications that can run in any modern browser.

• The Language Integrated Query (LINQ) Project is a set of language innovations for the Microsoft .NET Framework that makes it simpler for developers to access data. LINQ comprises a set of language extensions to C# and Visual Basic® and a unified programming model that extends the .NET Framework to offer integrated querying for objects, databases and XML. LINQ enables developers to write queries for accessing data natively in C# or Visual Basic without having to use other languages, such as Structured Query Language (SQL) or XQuery.

• Windows Presentation Foundation “Everywhere” is a subset of the full Windows Presentation Foundation, a powerful platform-level presentation and display engine. Windows Presentation Foundation “Everywhere” enables the ubiquitous delivery of content-rich scenarios on different platforms and form factors.

More on LINQ in the Q&A.
