As many of you know I have been giving a presentation on Astoria
a fair number of times over the last 8 weeks and it has been very interesting talking to everyone about the pros and cons of this client-side data access story for AJAX, Silverlight, XBAP and PopFly (etc.) applications. The good news is that at TechEd Developers Europe earlier this month Pablo Castro took time out to chat to me about some of the more architectural issues surrounding Astoria. You can download the 28 minute podcast here
. Though the podcast should be useful for anyone it isn’t aimed at providing an introduction to Astoria. The assumption is that you have already gained some knowledge of this subject. For further background see the Astoria site
and/or my slide deck
The December CTP should be coming out, well, in December and this moves us away from the proof of concept and much closer to an actual product. Stay tuned.
