Next .Net Dojo: Windows Communication Foundation!

As promised, you heard it here first … the next .Net Dojo! It’s been a little tougher in coming and planning due to a little issue with a hurricane named Ike … I’m sure you’ve heard of him. I’m not a big fan of his myself.

So … our topic will be Windows Communication Foundation, presented by Mr. Stephen Fulcher … someone that some of you may have met once or twice … and sponsored by our friends at New Horizons Houston! Here’s the skinny:

Overview:
Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) is Microsoft’s strategic technology for building distributed, connected systems. Initially released with .NET 3.0, it has been significantly enhanced in .NET 3.5 to support the various web programming models including SOAP, POX, WS-*, REST and RSS/Atom syndications.  Topics covered include: SOA basics, WCF architecture, WCF bindings, hosting WCF services, WCF behaviors, WCF security and some design best practices.


What you will learn:

Steven Fulcher will guide you through a combination of lecture and hands-on labs where we will learn how to implement the various web programming models with WCF. Specifically, we will cover SOA basics, WCF architecture, WCF bindings, hosting WCF services, WCF behaviors, WCF security and some design best practices.


Prerequisites
:
To fully participate in this workshop, attendees will need an open mind and a laptop with:
-  Visual Studio 2008 Professional or higher (Trial is OK) with Service Pack 1
-  Windows PowerShell 1.0 (optional, but recommended)
-  Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Standard or Express
-  A CD-ROM drive to load additional components and lab files.

 

So … I know you want to sign up for this … go here and register now! If last time is any indication, space will fill up fast!!

Unfortunately I'll be at Tulsa Tech Fest that day, but I'm sure it will be a hit!

(you might want to mention the date/time in the post, though.)
