Speaking: Shreveport, LA 7/20/2009 – WCF

Posted by Keith Elder | Posted in Speaking | Posted on 20-07-2009

Tonight I’ll be speaking at the Shreveport, LA .Net User Group.  This is my first trip back to Shreveport in 12 years and I’m looking forward to the visit.  I used to live in Bossier City / Shreveport, LA after I graduated college.  It was there I had my first teaching job.  It is funny how life makes full circles because the leader of the .Net Group there, Brian, I taught when he was in 8th grade. 

Tonight I will be Demystifying Windows Communication Foundation.


Windows Communication Foundation was released with the .Net 3.0 framework and is the future of the platform for distributed computing. With .Net 3.5 and Visual Studio 2008, Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) became a first class citizen with additional tooling and add ons for Windows Workflow Foundation. In this session we are going to look at WCF from the standpoint of how to transition from ASMX web services and some of the important things you should know about WCF. If you have been hesitant in adopting WCF and still writing ASMX web services, this session will hopefully put you over the edge to giving WCF a try. I assure you, once you do, you will never look back.

If you are in the area I hope you’ll come out and join the conversation.

Just wanted to thank you for coming down to speak to our user group. Just from what you showed us, I can see great potential for using WCF on some projects. Now to find some time and really dig into all it has to offer!
