February 10-12 2010 is SPTechCon in San Francisco.  I will be presenting on the Business Data Catalog and concentrating specifically on how to create BDC solutions within SharePoint and Office and the benefits of doing so.  Initially we will have a quick overview of the BDC before creating an invoice solution using VSTO and Word 2007 which obtains a list of customer and product information from the BDC.  We will also explore the advantages of using the BDC API to create web part solutions over using ADO.NET or Linq.  Finally we will be exploring a pre built WCF Web Service which exposes BDC data that can then be used in any application while using SharePoint as a central hub for BDC data.  I will be representing Lightning Tools at SPTechCon and can be found on the Lightning Tools booth if anyone has any BDC or BCS related questions.
