ASP.NET 4.0
In this talk we will give a brief overview of ASP.NET 4.0 features, including new features in ASP.NET Core Services, ASP.NET Web Forms, ASP.NET MVC, Dynamic Data, ASP.NET Chart Control, Visual Web Developer Enhancements, Web Application Deployment with Visual Studio 2010 and Enhancements to ASP.NET Multi-Targeting

WCF Data Services
ADO.NET Data Service has been renamed to WCF Data Services. In this talk we will cover some of the new features, including Data binding, counting entities in an entity set, Server-driven paging and Query projections.

Entity Framework
The Entity Framework decreases the amount of coding and maintenance required for data-driven applications by enabling you to program against data models defined in terms of entities and relationships. In this talk we will give a brief overview of the new features in the Entity Framework as part of .NET4.0.

Parallel Extensions
The .NET Framework 4 introduces a new programming model for writing multithreaded and asynchronous code that greatly simplifies the work of application and library developers. The new model enables developers to write efficient, fine-grained, and scalable parallel code in a natural idiom without having to work directly with threads or the thread pool. This talk will give a brief overview of the new System. Threading. Tasks namespace and other related types support this new model. Parallel LINQ (PLINQ), which is a parallel implementation of LINQ to Objects, enables similar functionality through declarative syntax.
