Microsoft Sync Framework
· 3342 days ago by Thijs Kroesbergen for Brokenwire.NET

Yesterday evening I did a presentation about the Microsoft Sync Framework. The text on the slides is mostly in Dutch, but there are some pretty pictures to entertain you as well.

I’ve made a copy of the slides available, and the code for the demos shown is also downloadable. For the Ado sync demo you’ll need a copy of the Northwind database on your SQL 2005 instance, a database backup is included in the zip. The file sync only requires a source and a destination folder. Both projects will build in Visual Studio 2008, after you’ve installed the Sync Framework bits.

Please leave me a comment if you attended presentation (and tell me if you liked it)!
