Hello All Portland .NET-ers!
I wanted to let everyone know what we have planned for the December PADNUG (http://www.padnug.org) meeting. Due to a scheduling conflict with our regular venue, meetings have moved to a **NEW LOCATION**. Please make a note of it!
The auditorium is in room 1508 through entrance B. There is a $2 parking fee. The kiosk for paying for parking is located between entrances B and C.
Stuart is a consultant, course author, and instructor. He recently served as technical lead and author of a Web services course for Microsoft. Stuart is also editor for the Longhorn Developer FAQ on MSDN.
There is a huge movement in the software industry towards Web services and service-orientation. What is the essence of a service? What values do services provide to a software organization? How do you organize and combine services into systems that realize the full benefit of service-orientation?
These are increasingly important issues for developers and architects working on the .NET Framework. Today you create Web services using ASMX. Looking forward to Indigo - the communications pillar of Longhorn - service-orientation is at the core of all communication. That will profoundly change on how software is architected, designed, implemented and deployed. Service-oriented architecture can guide your use of Web services today, and prepare you for understanding and creating tomorrow's software.
Important topic and excellent local speaker! Look forward to seeing everyone there!
