Announcing: Essential Windows Communication Foundation

Word's getting out, so it's time to acknowledge it on this blog. 

If you were at TechEd, you may have noticed copies of a sample chapter of Essential Windows Communication Foundation being given out at the Addison-Wesley booth. 

Essential WCF The eagle eyed among you (I heard from a bunch of people, actually) noticed the author listing on the front...

I'm very happy to be working with some of the best minds in WCF I know, Steve Resnick and Rich Crane.  Steve and Rich are fellow Microsoft guys based at the Microsoft Technology Center in Waltham, where they work with customers on this technology every day.  Steve and Rich are doing the lion's share of the chapters and I'm writing several chapters in my areas of speciality.

It's also good to be working on a .NET Development Series book, with a rich heritage of solid developer titles that have come before us in the series - Essential ASP.NET, Essential .NET, Framework Design Guidelines, and others. 

So, when?

Look for the book near the time when Visual Studio 2008 and .NET 3.5 are released.  That's certainly no coincidence as we're writing everything from the ground up to be current with the changes to WCF that those technologies are bringing.
