Speaking at Tampa Bay, FL .Net User Group

Posted by Keith Elder | Posted in Speaking | Posted on 13-04-2009

Thursday, April 23rd, I’ll be speaking in Tampa Bay, FL at the local .Net User Group.  This time of the year the weather should be great and the fish should be biting.

While in Tampa I’ll be speaking on WCF, you know, that technology that makes the world go around?  Think about where we’d be without services today? Things that make the Internet fun like Twitter, Facebook, Mobile Apps and more would have a very hard time working.  Think about it, they are ALL built on services.  Some don’t look at services as a sexy piece of technology but I do because it is so important.  The next time you open your mobile phone up and search for the nearest gas station you can thank a service.

Services aren’t just just for public facing applications but for companies as well.  Without services, we’d all be resorting to storing all of our data on our PC’s instead of being able to store things in the cloud. Not to mention we’d have that interoperability problem between platforms.  So yes, services are sexy!

In Tampa I’ll be breaking down WCF and showing a melting pot of things that’ll hopefully keep everyone on the edge of their seats.  I’ll also have some Deep Fried Bytes swag to give away.  If you are in the area, I hope to see you there.
