Windows Mobile webcasts for April/May
Here’s a list of upcoming Windows Mobile webcasts I got from the John at myITforum blog:
- TechNet Webcast: Deploying Mobile Device Manager 2008 is easier (and cheaper) than you think (Level 300)
System Center Mobile Device Manager (SCMDM) is a complex product with a lot of dependencies which must all be in place in order for it to work correctly. This session, which takes almost 2 years of hands-on experience of deploying implementing SCMDM in the field, steps through how to successfully (and cost effectively) implement this product in the enterprise. The objective of this session is to address the misconception that SCMDM is hard to implement while showing how MDM eliminates almost all of the overhead associated with Blackberrys while retaining and elevating both manageability and security.
Presenter: Patrick Salmon, Mobility Architect, Enterprise Mobile

- MSDN Webcast: 24 Hours of Windows Mobile Application Development: WCF Development and Mobile Devices (Level 300)
Communicating with the server-side and the rest of your corporate network infrastructure is a key aspect of any mobile smart client application that lives within a distributed enterprise architecture. However, mobile devices aren't always on the Web or docked into the corporate network. Therefore your applications have to handle a range of scenarios for transferring data to and from the home office during times when a connection is available and storing information locally when a connection is not available. Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) provides a unified programming model for building connected applications with managed code on the desktop and the server. Thanks to the WCF extensible channel architecture, mobile devices can also participate and leverage WCF, but only a subset of the full WCF model is supported. This session explores the similarities and the differences in building mobile communications infrastructures using Microsoft .NET Compact Framework 3.5 and WCF. Through live demos using Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 and other mobile tools, we’ll cover the WCF programming model and available layers, the supported channels, integrating with the desktop and server-side, see how to cover the lack of device addressability, the role of Microsoft Exchange 2007, e-mail and AirSync, extensibility points, security and more. If you think you know everything about WCF, think again…mobile devices are also part of the enterprise equation and you need to learn how to reach out to them.

- MSDN Webcast: Overview of Developing Windows Mobile Applications using Visual Studio 2008 (Level 200)
With Visual Studio 2008, Device Developers have a very powerful development environment at their hands. In this sample filled Webcast you will learn how to develop applications in managed code for Windows Mobile Devices and you will learn how to configure and make use of Device Emulator to test your applications. You will also learn how to write unit tests for your applications and how to make use of the .NET Compact Framework 3.5 Power Toys to analyze performance of your running applications. Of course you will also learn how to deal with data on your device, making use of SQL Compact CE. This webcast is your perfect preparation to get the most out of all Windows Mobile sessions during Tech-Ed 2009.
Presenter: Maarten Struys, Embedded Evangelist, PTS Netherlands

- MSDN Webcast: Hiding the Key: Practical Security for Windows Mobile Applications (Level 300)
Enterprise mobile applications usually require that sensitive data is stored on a mobile device. This session shows you how to store data securely in encrypted form and, most importantly, how to store encryption keys securely so that an attacker can't get access to them. You'll also learn how to encrypt configuration files to hide sensitive data, and how to implement a working password-based access control system for your mobile apps. We'll also look at how to use client certificates to control access to server resources.
Presenter: Andy Wigley, Mobile Application Development MVP

- MSDN Webcast: 24 Hours of Windows Mobile Application Development: The Embedded Database for Building Mobile Line of Business Applications (Level 200)
This presentation will provide a great introduction into using Microsoft .NET Compact Framework and Microsoft SQL Server CE database development to create line of business applications, with a focus on database techniques for occasionally connected scenarios. Windows Mobile computing has started to extend past the reach of the office out into the field. Developing for this environment requires a new set of tools for .NET developers. There will be a strong focus on data driven applications and data synchronization techniques.
Presenter: Chris Craft, Senior Software Architect, ACS Technologies

- MSDN Webcast: BenkoTips Live & On Demand: Building Windows Mobile Applications (Level 200)
With the rapid growth in the mobile industry see what it takes to build applications and systems that take advantage of skills and tools you already know. In this session we use Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 and the Windows Mobile 6 Refresh SDK to create a data aware application and deploy it to a real device. BenkoTips Live & On Demand brings events to you. This webcast series is dedicated to helping developers explore the possible. Join us each week as we take a look at what is new for developers, and see how to take advantage of the tools that developers use. From Microsoft Silverlight to Windows SharePoint Services, from the Microsoft .NET Framework to Microsoft Visual Studio, from Internet Information Services (IIS) 7.0 to membership, we explore it all.
