Raymond Endres began his presentation with the remark that we as developers would like to share data and applications.
You can devide applications in two groups: Reach applications (through the web) and Rich Applications. In the middle there are hybrid applications called Mesh Enabled application.
To make your application Mesh enabled integate Live Services into your application, use as much of the Live Framework as you like.
Raymond gave the first meaningfull demonstration of an application using Live Framework: MeshBoard; a sort of messageboard application.
Main entry point for accessing Live Data is LiveOperatoinEnvironment class. After connecting to that all available resources can be used.
Live Services: users control their own data.
Mesh object is the container of all application data. It contains Datafeeds, Members, Mappings, News, Activities.
Datafeed stores application data as metadata or blobs, has replication and sync capabilities
Members represent LiveID’s, have to be invited to be part of a resource
FeedSync handles the synchronisation between members.
LiveFX is the uniform way to program Live Services.
