About All About Interop

This Blog is dedicated to exploring interop opportunities between .NET-based systems and other systems.  The key approaches to interop covered here include: Web services, REST/POX, message queues, dedicated bridges, and others. 

Dino Chiesa is the primary author of most of these articles.  Others may also contribute from time to time.

This blog won't carry human interest stories.  No birth or death notices, health or hobby updates, etc.  This is just interop. 

About the theme:
On July 23rd, 2007, I moved to the "Kid congo" theme for Community Server.  I added a few customizations to get the colors and layout the way I wanted them.  It uses a CSS-based layout.
