  • 7:00PM - WCF and REST, Scott Seely


Back to basics:

WCF helps you to build message oriented systems by letting you focus on the messages you want to send and receive. WCF abstracts away the underlying protocols, wire formats, and other parts that make messaging hard. In this talk, we will cover the basics you need in order to successfully use WCF. If you need an introduction or a refresher, this is the talk for you.



The Microsoft stack gives us lots of ways to build RESTful services: ASP.NET/IIS7 integration, MVC, WCF, and ADO.NET Data Services. In this talk, we’ll cover how to think about REST. Then, we’ll cover how each technology can be used with REST and even dive into a few code samples and demos.

Scott Seely is the author of "Essential REST Services via .NET"
