Understanding Web Services – UK event, November 30th, London

Later this month I will be running a one day MSDN session around understanding Web Service – I hope some of you reading this blog will be able to make it. It’s a free event, aimed at developers and system designers, and really anyone interested in web services.


Web services is one of those topics that most developers know a little about, but not that many have explored the topic in depth, and are up to date on the latest standards, etc, so this is why we are putting on the event.
