Building Smart Client Data Applications with Windows Forms 2.0

I gave a talk at LexDotNet in Lexington KY last night on building smart client data apps. It really boils down to a similar talk to my Tackle Complex Data Binding with Windows Forms 2.0 talk, but with a slightly different approach and angle. I did mostly a large progressive demo where I started out with the simple and impressive data binding capabilties for working directly with a database in your Windows Forms app. Then I explained why you should never do that in a serious production application and stepped through how to migrate the functionality to a three or four layer/tier architect without giving up any of the capability of the data binding features in Windows Forms.

Here are the slides and demos that I used.
