I’m delighted to say that I will be returning to TechEd Europe
in Barcelona this year to present two sessions:-
- Deploying Internationalized Applications Using ClickOnce
ClickOnce is a .NET Framework 2.0 Smart Client deployment technology which brings the power and ease of web deployment to Windows Forms and Console applications. ClickOnce is a powerful and compelling model with many options. Deploying internationalized applications (i.e. applications designed to run in different cultures), however, requires additional consideration. This session covers what you need to know to successfully deploy internationalized applications using ClickOnce. The subject can be broadly broken down into two halves: first, the internationalized application must be deployed and, second, the ClickOnce user interface used during deployment and installation must be localized. This session illustrates different models for deploying internationalized applications (including deploying all satellite assemblies as a single application, all satellites assemblies as individual applications and grouping satellite assemblies by parent culture) and shows how these models can be supported by Visual Studio 2005 and msbuild. The session also shows how each part of the ClickOnce user interface can be localized and what limiting factors exist which might influence your deployment decisions.
- Using ClickOnce and XBAPs To Deploy Windows Forms and WPF Applications
ClickOnce provides the ease of web form deployment for Windows Forms applications. The same technology is used in XAML Browser Applications (XBAPs) which are Windows Presentation Foundation applications that are hosted in a browser. This session introduces the ClickOnce technology and demonstrates its use in many scenarios including: zero touch deployment, one touch deployment, reversion to previous versions, uninstallation. We also cover deploying WPF applications through the browser (known as XBAPs) and illustrate the similarities and differences between XBAPs, MSI-deployed WPF applications and Windows Forms applications deployed using ClickOnce. This session represents an opportunity to understand how to get the ease of web deployment together with richness of Windows Forms or WPF.
If you’re going along come and say hello.
