I am in Redmond this week to attend a DevelopMentor Web Services Guerilla course.  One of my MVP's for Web Services is the instructor (Aaron Skonnard).

Today the topics were to introduce us to XML (only a little) and to the Web Services architecture.  It was a great introduction.  We also took some time to write some HTTP Handlers.  It was very interesting.

I will be here a week and it is from 9 am - 9 pm, so it will be quite the time.
