In the 435 class next week, Hari Sivaramakrishnan will be giving a tutorial on the .NET platform with demos. This is an excellent opportunity to get a brief overview of this important platform. All are welcome to attend. WHEN: APRIL 6, 2004, 9:30-10:45AM WHERE: CSIC 2107 TITLE: THE .NET PLATFORM -- A TUTORIAL ABSTRACT: Current ruminations about Microsoft's .NET in various forums are reminiscent of three blind men attempting to identify an elephant: It is perceived as very different things, depending on one's perspective. Some see .NET as Microsoft's next-generation Visual Studio development environment. Some see it as yet another new programming language(C#), while others see it as a framework based on XML and SOAP. In reality, .NET wants to be all of these things, and a bit more. Microsoft defines .NET as "a set of Microsoft software technologies for connecting information, people, systems, and devices. It enables a high level of software integration through the use of Web services' small, discrete, building-block applications that connect to each other as well as to other, larger applications over the Internet." In this presentation, we will cover a detailed introduction to demystify .NET and one will be able to see the array of technologies under the .NET umbrella. Obviously Microsoft is targeting these as alternatives to other existing platforms, like J2EE and LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, Perl). It is predicted that by the year 2005, J2EE and .NET will have 40% market share each in the enterprise development world and both platforms will co-exist in large corporations. From this perspective, we will also present a brief comparison of features between J2EE and .NET.
