Presentation: "Service-Oriented Communication with Windows Communication Foundation"

Track:   .Net Enterprise Development

Time: Wednesday 13:00 - 14:00

Communication is everywhere. Hardly any application can live without it. The Windows Communication Foundation (WCF, aka Indigo) can be used to design and develop service-oriented distributed solutions based on the .NET Framework and the Windows platform. We finally have a homogenous and interoperable communication runtime and programming model. This session shows you the basics of WCF and moves on to address and solve common problems in distributed systems designs and implementations. Come and see a practical approach to realizing distributed solutions with WCF - beyond the hype and 'Hello World'.

Audience: Software Architects and Developers

Level: 200-300
