For data centric 3 tiers application, it is often useful to be able to query from the client tier directly. Microsoft provides two technologies to do this: WCF RIA Services and WCF Data Services. However, these technologies only support basic queries and the persistence is not optimal. This could be enough for basic scenarios but it is not in many (most?) real life cases.
As consultant, Matthieu MEZIL worked with many customers who finds these technologies not good enough for what they want to do. Based on his experience he made a technology that would cover every query and that would really improve developers experience. It’s called WCF Async Queryable Services (WAQS). WAQS is not a framework, it’s a meta-framework.
In this session, Matthieu will talk about how to use WAQS, what are advantages of using a meta-framework instead of using a framework and, at the end, will talk about the future of WAQS.
