I'm presenting at the Software Association of Oregon (SAO) on November 20th, come for the pizza, stay for the WSDL.
Web Services: Behind the Music
This month's Developers SIG is a hands-on demystification of Web Services. This technical talk is good for the beginner as well as the expert; helpful for the programmer and the business user. You will leave this presentation with:
- A "Zen-like" understanding of how Web Services work and how to make them work for you.
- Insight in how TCP/IP, HTTP, XML, XSD, SOAP, and WSDL all work together to become "XML WebServices"
- A sense of the vast landscape of Web Service space you can choose from when working with Web Services
- A view into how Web Services work from .NET, Java, COM (VB6, VB Script, Office, etc)
- Your own bat-belt of free tools & utilities that make working with Web Services just that much easier
