Microsoft Enterprise Tech Talk – Introduction to WCF

I recently gave an Introductory session on Windows Communication Foundation at Microsoft Innovation Center, Karachi – Pakistan (20th Mar’ 09). Adil

The targeted audience were industry professionals and the goal was to demonstrate them making WCF services. Following was the agenda of the session:

  • Background
  • What is WCF?
  • WCF Service Model
  • Creating a WCF Service
    • Contract
    • Binding
    • Address
  • Hosting ServicesAudience
  • Creating and Invoking WCF Clients
  • Configurable Endpoints
  • Migration and Performance Issues

The session was followed by Q & A in which audience were very keen to ask question related to migration from ASMX to WCF. I shared some of my experience using WCF services with the audience as well.

In collaboration with Microsoft Community Partner, We are soon going to announce another session on “Exploring WCF Features” in which we will see the demo of some features that ship with WCF.

I would like to thank all the participants for their valuable time and interest.
