Coming Soon: WCF P2P Series

3. May 2007 10:00

Recently, I have been spending some time looking into the P2P capabilities of WCF.  It is one of those topics within WCF that is typically overlooked.  I have met a surprisingly large number of developers with a basic knowledge of WCF that didn't even realize there was direct support for P2P.  This is unfortunate since NetPeerTcpBinding is actually packed with some very cool functionality.  It seems as though quite a few folks have some preconceived notion that P2P isn't really useful for business applications.  However, P2P can be entirely appropriate for certain types of business applications.

At any rate, I am currently working on a WCF P2P series that will be posted over the course of one to two weeks.  I think it is a potentially useful tool that should get more visibility.  So, I will attempt to do my small part by spreading some information about it.  I am also giving some consideration to using it as a basis for a Code Camp presentation in October.  It will probably depend upon how well the material is received here.  If this is something that interests you, be sure to bookmark my blog or subscribe to the feed.  The series will probably kick off May 14th or May 21st and run for a couple of weeks.
