In this session, we will look at the new features of PowerShell 3.0 – including Windows PowerShell Web Service, Windows PowerShell Web Access, and Microsoft Script Explorer.

Grok Talk Topic
Introduction to Micro-ORMs
Entity Framework, NHibernate, and Linq To SQL are powerful frameworks that have been leveraged for several years. They became a beacon of hope from writing repetitive SQL queries, paging through record sets, and digging around for some stupid #TempTable issue in a stored proc. Are we now choosing these frameworks to just avoid the hassle of dealing with data access. There are circumstances where you do not need the overhead involved with these large ORM's. Small lightweight applications and performance critical projects still exist, but we do not want to go back to hand writing SQL for every call. Introducing the shiny new Micro-ORM. Actually they are not that new, but they are gaining more attention. This will be an introductory overview of a few Mico-ORM's that may get you and your DBA back on speaking terms. We will be discussing Massive, Dapper, ORMLite, and PetaPoco with several free code samples to take home to your friends and family.
