At the latest QCon, Christian Weyer presented on Windows Communication Foundation, (WCF), with a slightly different slant.  In the presentation Christian provides the full source code to a complete end-to-end .NET 3.x application using WCF.  Beginning with the four tenets of Service Orientation:

  1. Boundaries are explicit
  2. Services are Autonomous
  3. Share Schema & Contract
  4. Communication Based on Policy

 Christian asks architects to focus on their overall architecture and service orientation.  He lists out the many hotspots when designing service oriented communication:

  1. Contract Design
  2. Bindings
  3. WCF duplex and callbacks
  4. Streaming
  5. Hosting
  6. Proxy handling
  7. Interoperability
  8. Threading
  9. Data Access
  10. Unit and Load Testing
  11. Debugging

Christian then focuses on WCF contract modelling, WCF Binding Selection and finishes with guidance around WCF hosting.  Enjoy this exclusive QCon presentation brought to you by InfoQ.

worst video streaming......ever by ryan martin

This site is so annoying. Great content, horrible streaming. As soon as I get engaged in a talk it freezes.... Buffering... FOR EVER. ARGH!!!

Re: worst video streaming......ever by Floyd Marinescu

Guys, I'm terribly sorry. There is something wrong with our video streaming provider and we're doing what we can to troubleshoot - unfortunately it's out of our control. We are exploring alternatives as fast as we can and are scheduled to migrate to a completely new solution by the beginning of March, which will make all these problems go away.

Please do also provide transcripts for us non-native speakers. It would be very helpful if I could read the info on my way to/from work vs. having to sit at the desk and watch...

Re: worst video streaming......ever by ryan martin

Thanks Floyd, I look forward to that. Other than the video issue, the site and content are fantastic.
