Do you want to learn how to quickly convert your .NET Applications/Components to Service Oriented Solutions? If so, then that’s perfect, because I want to show you how easy it will be with the .NET 3.0 Framework and Windows Communication Foundation. Register and attend my web cast and I promise very little PowerPoint (just for a bit of background) and then a whole lot of demonstration.
Note: This talk will be focused on how to “migrate” a .NET 1.x/2.0 Service/Web Service to a Services Oriented Solution with .NET 3.0, and not about how one would Architect a Services Oriented Solution. Please see our MSDN site for discussions, articles, web casts on Services Orient Architecture, including this article by the Patterns and Practices group found here.
Here’s all of the details:
When: Next Tuesday, December 5th from 11:00AM-12:30 (EST) over the Web
With all of the buzz going around about Service Oriented Architecture/Solutions and building “loosely coupled” systems. The big questions is: How does a developer build a Service Oriented/Loosely-Coupled solution with .NET? Isn’t Web Services enough? Do I have to use .NET Remoting? Do I have to learn how to build MSMQ (Message Queue) solutions with .NET? If these are the questions, then .NET 3.0 and Windows Communication Foundation IS the answer! Read on for more details, but you have to see it in with your eyes to believe how EASY it is!
The Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) code named “Indigo” is the latest technology for building Service Oriented solutions on Microsoft Technology. WCF is the technology that merges Web Services (including, WS-*), .NET Remoting, COM+, Enterprise Services, and Message-based programming (MSMQ) into one unified programming syntax based on the Microsoft .NET (2.0) framework. In other words, if you learn WCF, you can build solutions that can take advantage of everything from Soap-based Web Services, to binary over the wire communication, to “Guaranteed Delivery” Message-based solutions, (or all of the above in one solution) without having to learn the particulars of all of those technologies!
Today’s talk is oriented towards the developer/architect who wants to know how one would actually build a new application or migrate an existing application with WCF, while adhering to the tenets of Services Oriented development.
Who should attend?
– Developers who would like to see the future of Service Oriented development on the Microsoft Platform and/or would like to see how to migrate existing applications to .NET 3.0.
NOTE: This session is geared towards developers and a lot of code will be shown, with minimal “Slide-ware” sprinkled in for background information. For more background information, please see: www.microsoft.com/windowsvista (the base site for all WinFX programming).
