Techeddev_2006_150x123_ibtTechEd 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!

Heh. You will be a better man than I if you can manage to enjoy a conference with wife and baby along. It's just not the same, much as I love them.

But I have little doubt that you are a better man than I. :)

That was a good presentation. I have fond memories of you running your demonstration by me for 40 minutes in front of the TechEd store this year. Too bad I don't really wake up until 2pm Mountain. :)

I am booked on this but sadly I will have to pass it to a work mate so Im disappointed I'll miss your talk. However some of us here in the UK don't think its a good idea to split teched. One of the great things about teched was when your head was full to the brim of sharepoint c# and office you could go and visit OS land take a seat in the awsome hacking presentations and new ISA server. Now whilst not core to development I believe its crucial that developers try and gain some idea of the environment there work is being hosted on.

Take for instance ADS Automated Deployment Services, had one of our number not had chance to visit this talk he would not have championed this tool from a developers standpoint and overcome some of the dreadful pain we have suffered in manual installations differences in IIS builds and deployments. Thanks to this we have a lot fewer support calls don't have to hang around while we wait for an installation to fail, as everything was tested including the deployment itself.

I think the split was a sad day for developers futher separating them from their counterparts in support and deployment, and for those developers who are responsible for deplying their own now they have to spend two weeks away in barcelona, Hmm perhaps there is some good in this.

Scott: I know as an editor that my interests at Tech Ed are different than the technical attendees, but for me, having the developers and IT audiences together in one place is a huge benefit. The exhibitors who want to be there for both audiences might balk some at the 11 day format of the two Barcelona events if something that long or longer comes to the US version.
