I’ll be speaking about Domain Driven Approach with EF4 at TechEd 2010


UPDATED 27/2/10 : added ’˜being hyper productive'

I've just noticed that the session details is already up on the TechEd Middle east website.


I have to tell you that this is really exciting to be a part of the first Tech Ed in the middle east region. When you have a brand like Jumeirah, the umbrella company of the 7 star hotel, sponsoring the event, you know that you're talking major business!

UPDATED 27/2/10 My talk (DEV303 : I'll see you there!) will be talking about becoming even more productive with Entity Framework 4 and Domain Driven approach. One might ask, how can one be even more productive than with a DataGrid bounded with a DataSource? Is it even possible?

It sure is possible! To me, being productive doesn't just mean starting fast, but keeping a sustainable pace as things get more complex. This is what true productivity is all about.

I'm expecting that most of the audience will be familiar with data access patterns, and new to Domain Driven Design.

We'll look at the evolution of design from Smart UI type of architecture (Rapid Application Development), 3 tier (Transaction Scripts) to Domain Driven design with rich domain models with behaviors. I will introduce the first few examples using Linq to SQL, and will take it to the finish line using the upcoming Entity Framework 4 and the awesome POCO feature.
