INETA UG Talks This Week

I gave two talks in SoCal this week, one at the San Diego .NET User Group Connected Systems SIG in San Diego and one at the South Bay .NET User Group in Torrance.

The San Diego talk was titled Exercise WCF Best Practices and was a collection of practices with context and explanation on employing features and capabilities in the WCF stack in the best way. I talked about server side considerations including interface and layer separation, instancing model, exception handling, security model, and hosting, as well as client side considerations such as proxy creation, caching of proxies, and exception handling on the client side.

The Torrance talk was A First Look at WF 4, which covered all the new features coming in WF 4. I covered the new designer, declarative XAML workflows, new activities in the base activity library, the flowchart workflow model, hosting of workflows, arguments, variables, and expressions, workflow services, and runtime improvements to name a few things.
