VB user group meeting this week: Diving into ADO.NET 2.0 and VS 2005 Data features

Here's the email I got from Jackie regarding thie month's (week's!) VB user group meeting:

"This month we will take a look at the two sides of Data Access in .NET 2.0 and Visual Studio 2005.  I'll be giving the 2 presentations – The first presentation,  ADO.NET 2.0 – The Highlights", will look at the changes and enhancements to the ADO.NET objects in the .NET Framework.   In the second presentation,  Data Access Enhancements & Additions in Visual Studio 2005", I will spend a lot of time discussing and demoing the new objects and tools available in Visual Studio for building data-intensive applications.  This presentation will cover Data Sources, Typed DataSets, and (the new) TableAdapters, as well as Winforms Data-Binding for both DataSets and Custom Objects.


As always, we'll have our special "Hatzilu" session at our meeting. So please come prepared to discuss your most frustrating problems (or at least some of them!) and to share some of your own techniques and solutions that you have found useful in your applications.

Please remember that it is important for me to know as accurately as possible how many people will be attending each meeting, so that I can arrange for the right amount of food and the proper setup of the chairs.  Please confirm your attendance.

See you there !!
