TechEd 2006 Approaches
TechEd 2006 approaches...it's going to be a busy week. I hope I'll see you there!
Here's what I've got in the hopper...I've added a second session, this time with Keith Pleas.
- Sunday All Day: TechEd Pre-Conference Seminar - Architecture. If you're at TechEd on Sunday, come to the Architecture PreCon hosted by Ron Jacobs. I'll be interviewed by Ron on various subjects from 3:00 PM - 3:45 PM. Be sure to check out David Ing's talks in the afternoon!
- Monday Morning: Book Signing 10:30 AM Conference Bookstore: How dorky is this? If you're a nerd and want another nerd to sign books that also double as a booster seat, I'll be at the Conference Bookstore along with the authors of ASP.NET MVP Hacks lowering the value of your purchase with a sharpie!
- Monday Evening: INETA: I'll be at BeanTown.NET on Monday June 12, 2006, 5:30 – 7:30pm at Adesso Systems, One Liberty Square, 7th Floor, Boston, MA (directions) if you want a break from TechEd and want to eat pizza with nerds and talk tools. We're going to (attempt to) tape this session with Camtasia and post it on the Wrox/Wiley site.
- Tuesday Afternoon: ARC310 Dirty SOAP: A Dynamic Endpoint without ASMX - How and Why?
Day/Time: Tuesday, June 13 4:30 PM - 5:45 PM Room: 257 AB
Speaker(s): Patrick Cauldwell, Scott Hanselman
Not every large system in the wild can use .NET 2.0, ASMX and "Indigo". Often the real world isn't very pretty, or formal use of .NET ASMX Web Services doesn't lend itself to a particular solution. Corillian's software handles a quarter of the nation's retail banking online population with .NET. The system is built with a contract-first approach using WSDL and a custom binding to generate in-process service proxies. When it came time for Corillian to present their Operations as SOAP, we created a dynamic endpoint - WITHOUT ASMX. We then extended it to support POX (Plain Old XML). In this session, we discuss the architectural and design ramifications of managing a dynamic endpoint and how this decision will positively or negatively affect our move to WCF.

- Wednesday Morning: DasBlog Roadmap 10:00 AM -11:30 AM) at the WCF/Connected Systems lounge/cabana/whatever-they-call-it-this-time. We'll be talking Roadmap on the 2.0 version of DasBlog. We may just change the name of DasBlog to WTF and subsume all the W*F Microsoft Frameworks. It could totally happen.
- Thursday Morning: ARC216 Deploying and Managing Your Own Enterprise Framework

Come to this session to get some advice on ways to deploy and manage your own enterprise framework. We look at issues with versioning in the various tiers as well as dealing with multi-tenancy and the versioning issues it creates. We also cover managing and operating applications based on your enterprise framework, with an emphasis on designing a health model and enabling health monitoring.
