Windows Phone Mango brings new multitasking capability for third party application developpers, in the form of fast application switching and background agents. In this course, we explore the new execution model that enables fast app switching, and we examine how to leverage this model in our applications. We also seek to understand what background agents are, how they work and how to use them, be it for scheduling simple popup reminders and alarms, or for running custom code in the background at regular time intervals. We also take a deep dive into the new background audio and background file transfer capabilities Mango brings to the table.

In this course, Donald walks you through the concepts involved with Aspect-Oriented Programming (AOP) in a .NET environment. AOP is a programming paradigm that enables increased modularity by allowing the separation of cross-cutting concerns through interceptors and code weaving. A typical example is logging – AOP makes it easy to cleanly inject logging behavior into classes without modifying method bodies. This course uses frameworks like Castle Windsor and PostSharp to implement AOP in .NET projects.
In this course you will learn how to use WebMatrix to build and customize web sites. Aside from learning about the tool itself, you will learn how to create, access and manipulate data, how to work with ASP.NET Web Pages and the Razor syntax, and how to deploy your site when it is ready.
This course explains how to develop Integration Services packages with an emphasis on the development of processes that support data warehousing. It begins by describing the overall process of package development, then describes the types of tasks that Integration Services and shows how these tasks can be performed sequentially or in parallel in the control flow by using precedence constraints. Then the course continues by reviewing the data flow components that are used for extract, transform, and load processes. In addition, the course covers the Integration Services expression language and scripting, and demonstrates how to debug packages, configure logging, manage transactions, and manage package restarts. It also describes how to automate the execution of packages. The features and demonstrations in this course focus on the SQL Server 2008 R2 release, although most topics also apply to earlier versions of Integration Services.
