In the latest show to be posted on The Microsoft Developer Show I talk with Steve Lasker about the direction of application development. This includes handling being occasionally connected, caching data and synchronising changes. In the past I have blogged about the work being done around the Microsoft Sync Services and the direction I think that WPF/e should go with the integration of SQL Server CE. Steve reaffirms this vision and summaries the value proposition of building Occasionally Connected Systems on top of the soon to be released SQL Server Compact Edition platform. Tune in here to listen to the full show.
