TechMixer University – August 19th

11. August 2008 21:46

On Tuesday, August 19th, TechMixer University will be held in Birmingham, AL.  This will be a large community driven training event that covers a wide spectrum of technologies.    The organizers have strived to offer a little something for everyone including developers, database professionals, project managers, and network professionals.  The event also provides coverage of non-Microsoft technologies such as Oracle, MySql, and Ruby.

Even if you can’t attend the entire event, I would encourage you to drop by for one or two sessions that interest you.  Visit the website for complete details:

I’ll be delivering a session on WCF entitled “Hit the Ground Running with WCF Services”.  Here is the abstract:

Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) is a major advancement within the Microsoft .NET platform that allows for easily exposing units of functionality as services that are accessible via a broad spectrum of communication protocols.  WCF has been built from the ground up around a highly flexible and extensible model that allows developers to concentrate on business problems rather than the details of communication plumbing.  Write your business logic once and simply expose it over the necessary protocols via configuration without changing a line of code!  If this sounds interesting, please join me for a crash course in the fundamental concepts of WCF.  This session is packed with material and strives to significantly reduce the learning curve for those that are new to the technology by providing an introduction to major features and capabilities of the WCF platform.
