Microsoft Live Mesh Part 3

I had a chance to see Ori Amiga give a presentation around the Live Mesh platform at the Web 2.0 Expo.  At first I was little hesitant about this technology.  After all the public preview is super early and lacking in a whole lot of usefulness and features.  Getting a chance to really see where it’s going however got me all excited.

You can view the same presentation on Channel 9 – Programming the Mesh.

What’s missing from the current preview is the entire Apps section that is a major part of the product.

Ori, medicine showed an example application that was created by Vertigo. This application was was a client based WPF family tree solution.  The exiting part was that the application had the ability to share and sync information of the Live Mesh Platform in more or less real time.

The above example showed how details could be edit in one place an immediately be available to over users of the application that were sharing data.  Of course this is an example, price that didn’t show how to deal with authority or data collision, but hey it’s a really good start.

Above is an example of using IronPython to talk to the mesh.  This makes it all seem so easy.

An example of how to work with the Mesh in C# was also shown.  Which of course is more useful to me.

I’m hoping that I can involved in the early developer program.  I think this sort of thing would be a perfect fit for the DigiLab.

Go check out the video on Channel9.
