The course contains an introduction to Single Sign-On. An in depth explanation of the Windows Identity Framework (WIF) and the ADFS version 2 server. In depth means: bits and bytes of the HTTP requests and responses, HttpModules, and customization. The analysis of the protocol is done with Fiddler2 and code analysis with Reflector. It also covers the Claims Language, Metadata and SAML2 partners. One module walks through some common scenarios and shows with code and configuration how to implement them.
In this course you will learn how to manage PowerPivot in SharePoint 2010, from both the user and administrative perspective.

The .NET Reactive Extensions (Rx) is a library to compose asynchronous and event-based programs using observable collections and LINQ-style query operators. Rx is a superset of LINQ’s standard query operators that exposes asynchronous and event-based computations as push-based, observable collections via the new IObservable<T> interface in .NET 4. This course walks you through the details of working with Rx to develop asynchronous applications.
