There is a new confluence of thought developing in the industry at large that we will explore. Models of distributed system design are emerging for which WCF’s varied and extensible feature stack is very applicable. But to leverage WCF to express these new models efficiently, the old way of programming WCF must die. It is time to anoint a new WCF. We need a better way to build distributed systems. What we really need is a Service-oriented Programming Model.
In this session Michael 'Monty' Montgomery will show you a very different WCF. A WCF without config files. A WCF without knobs to set. One based on conventions. WCF that is easy to test. WCF that is clean and simple. A new WCF built from simple techniques that you can easily employ yourself. Along the way Monty will reveal the aspects of service-orientation that are foundational to creating a service-oriented-programming model and to Modern Software Architecture in general. You can even take these aspects and apply them to other connectivity stacks or platforms to create a consistent service-oriented programming model across your entire distributed ecosystem.
