Ever since I posted about .Net Dojo, I’ve had quite a few requests to have it elsewhere. Well, after seeing Pablo’s Day of TDD and how awesome that was, I got this little notion that it might be cool to do .Net Dojo in Austin. And … also … well, this format was kinda new and I wanted to give it a trial run or two before I started doing more. So, with that said, we’ve got the very next .Net Dojo scheduled for Austin … our first one out there! It’s going to be the same as the last Houston event and, judging from the feedback that I got on the Houston Dojo, it’s gonna rock!
Here are the details:
When: November 3, 2008 1:00 PM – 5:00 PM
Where: Microsoft Austin Office
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:
Stephen 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.
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.
Now that you have the details, I know that you want to go here and register now. Hope to see y’all there!
