Well, it’s time for me to hit the road again touting the benefits of Virtual Earth and Windows Live technology.
Enterprise Mashups are a great way to spice up existing investments in SOA and Web Services with new technologies such as maps and Web APIs. In this session, Tatham Oddie, will demonstrate how you can leverage technologies such Virtual Earth and MapPoint Web Services to build a simple mapping solution for visualising customers… and all in 15 minutes!

I’ve also lined up some usergroup sessions to deliver a slightly tweaked version of my Tech.Ed presentation for those who either didn’t make it to Tech.Ed or were still sleeping off the party.
The presentation covers a reasonably high level overview of the technologies that fall under Windows Live, and what APIs you can use to access them. For a welcome change, I actually have really licensing numbers and actually dollar figures to talk about too (none of this "You’ll have to call a sales rep" type talk). Most importantly, it’s all about technologies that are available today and many of which are free too.
Utilising Windows Live Web Services Today
Windows Live represents a collection of opportunities to integrate with a new generation of online services. This session provides an overview of the Windows Live family – outlining the business and technical advantages, the range of integration options that exist for each service, real world examples and live demos.
