New Webcast on WCF contracts

Michèle Leroux Bustamante (das Blonde) has recorded a new webcast on Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) contracts for the MSDN Architecture Webcasts series.  Contracts for WCF describe the service in a standard, cross-platform way, defining what operations are possible on the service, the specifics of the data sent in each message, and the errors that can be raised or handled by the service.

This webcast is now available as a LiveOffice Replay:
Windows Communication Foundation (formerly code-named "Indigo") is a set of .NET technologies for building and running connected systems. Windows Communication Foundation services are composed of three basic elements: addresses, bindings, and contracts. Contracts define your service and the messages it sends or receives. This webcast focuses on understanding and designing Windows Communication Foundation contracts. Learn about the various types of contracts in Windows Communication Foundation, and the purpose of each type. We also describe how you can use contracts to control what your service messages send and receive.
Michèle is also providing samples from her upcoming WCF on her site:
