TechEd Developers 2006 - Barcelona, Spain
TechEd Europe is brilliantly being split into two halves - TechEd Developers and TechEd IT Forum. What a freaking awesome idea. I hope they do it that way in the states next year.
I'll be doing Patrick and my talk from TechEd US, with a new name (changed from Dirty SOAP):
ARC308 Contraxploitation (Exploiting your Contracts): A Dynamic Web Services Endpoint without WCF
Scott Hanselman - Thu Nov 9 15:45 - 17:00
Not every large system in the wild can use .NET 2.0, ASMX and WCF. 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.
I'll be showing a lot more code, as that was a bit of feedback from the US session that I'll incorporate into this one.
As an added bonus, Mo's new U.S. Passport came, as did Z's, so it'll be a family affair!
