I'm going to be doing a couple of sessions at the Oredev conference in Sweden in November

Writing REST based Systems with .NET

For many, building large scale service based systems equate to using SOAP. There is, however, another way to architect service based systems by embracing the model the web uses - REpresentational State Transfer, or REST. .NET 3.5 introduced a way of building the service side with WCF - however you can also use ASP.NET's infrastructure as well. In this session we talk about what REST is, two approaches to creating REST based services and how you can consume these services very simply with LINQ to XML.

Writing Service Oriented Systems with WCF and Workflow

Since its launch WCF has been Microsoft's premier infrastructure to writing SOA based systems. However one of the main benefits of Service Orientation is combining the functionality of services to create higher order functionality which itself is exposed as a service - namely service composition. Workflow is a very descriptive way of showing how services are combined and in .NET 3.5 Microsoft introduced an integration layer between WCF and Workflow to simplify the job of service composition. In this session we examine this infrastructure and bring out both its string and weak points with an eye to what is coming down the line in Project Oslo - Microsoft's next generation of its SOA platform.

Hope to see you there
