    Live at MIX: WCF and the Web (and Steve Maine, and Don Box)

    • 0 Comments
    We love WS-* as much as we do love Web-Style services. I say "Web-style", full knowing that the buzzterm is REST. Since REST is an architectural style and not an implementation technology, it makes sense to make a distinction and, also, claiming complete...

    Internet Service Bus

    • 13 Comments
    "ESB" (for "Enterprise Service Bus") is an acronym floating around in the SOA/BPM space for quite a while now. The notion is that you have a set of shared services in an enterprise that act as a shared foundation for discovering, connecting and federating...

    So how much faster is it really and is it? WCF performance in comparison.

    • 3 Comments
    We just published a great whitepaper written by our WCF/WF Performance PM Saurabh Gupta on the relative performance of WCF compared to ASMX, WSE, Enterprise Services, and Remoting. This is material for your favorites folder. The summary says: To...

    Dinner Now

    • 0 Comments
    Before I continue pointing out SDK samples, why not take a look at a great end-to-end .NET Framework 3.0 demo first? It's been out there for a while and hence this isn't really news, but in case you've not seen it (or the latest revision of it) go check...

    P2P Made Easy

    • 0 Comments
    One of the "niche" features in WCF that deserves a lot more attention than it is getting is our P2P support. The NetPeerTcpBinding looks, from the developer perspective, mostly like any other binding. The main difference between P2P applications and ...

    WCF Schema Validation with Message Inspectors

    • 1 Comments
    There are a lot of blog entries that I'd write if they weren't already written. Stupid statement. No, really. One of the great qualities of the documentation that we built for WCF and WF and CardSpace is that it's completely legible and understandable...

    Poison Control.

    • 0 Comments
    A bad sign for how much I’m coding these days is that I had a HDD crash three weeks ago and only restored Visual Studio into fully working condition with all my tools and stuff today. I’ve decided that that has to change otherwise I’ll get really rusty...

    Blogger Types: Who are they? Who are you?

    • 0 Comments
    I see an increasing number of research efforts going on to get people’s heads around the blogosphere and how to figure out what's relevant and what's not. 4-5 years back it was quite easy to do so, because there were so few of “us bloggers” and you could...

    COM Is Love

    COM Is Love. Disagree? Stop reading. Agree? Still feel it? Well, I just learned that there's a very unique way you can show your love for COM. Own it! Own it? Yes, I'm completely not kidding. We've got an open position for a Program Manager to...

    Wow! I'm watching the Oscars with my wife and she just thought I completely lost it during the last commercial break. I actually started cheering. Why? I've seen the first Microsoft commercial that made me think ... Wow. The firm starts getting how to...

    Yahoo Pipes. Aha.

    • 0 Comments
    I'm busy at a conference but just stumbled upon Yahoo Pipes via TechMeme and Dare . The little bits I read about it make that quite interesting to me (and put a big grin on my face) specifically because of this piece I wrote in 2003 and which also got...

    One more (big) step to make Identity work ...

    • 1 Comments
    WS-* or REST? Is there an epic battle? How does Microsoft think about a big chunk of the web development community ignoring the beloved WS-* specs and preferring "HTTP programming"? Answer: We think that people make these choices of good reasons and we...

    ASP.NET's autoEventWireup="false" page config setting breaks ASP.NET Web Services (ASMX): NullReferenceException

    • 1 Comments
    I've spent the last 1 1/2 weeks doing one of the most fun (seriously) work assignments that each Program Manager of our team gets to do every once in a while: Servicing. So until yesterday night (I'm flying home to Germany today) I was in charge of ASP...

    Shameless WCF Training Plug

    • 0 Comments
    I've posted the current WCF Training Providers list on wcf.netfx3.com this weekend. All of these folks are running custom-built training classes for WCF and until we here at MS come out with the "official" Microsoft Official Curriculum" for WCF and the...

    Get Chad

    If you are looking for a brilliant speaker for a conference, consider Chad Hower . As you might know, I make very few endorsements of that sort. Chad has been touring the Middle-East and Africa region for Microsoft in the past several years and spoke...
