Steve Bjorg will present an open source Web 2.0 platform and SDK built on the Mono/.Net toolset. This innovative framework makes it is easy to create and run rich, interactive web-services that can generate and combine data from many sources. The platform manages all aspects of the service’s lifetime, such as providing storage locations, database connections, event notifications, automatic data-conversion from XML to JSON, and short-circuit communication for co-hosted services. Now developers can write efficient, lightweight, highly decoupled, REST-based web-services using Mono/.Net and create compelling new experiences.
