I am presenting a webcast on ASMX 2.0 today from 11:00 am - 12:00 pm EST, which is 8:00 am - 9:00am PST. This session covers some of the same type of stuff you see in my blog, including the use of generics in web services, what nullable types buy you in web services, how to use IXmlSerializable, and a close look at SchemaImporterExtensions. We will look at interfaces in ASMX 2.0, and will also look at the WebServiceBindingAttribute's ConformanceClaims property and how to leverage that effectively.
This is definitely NOT a fluff session on web services, this will cover how to work around some very real problems.
Make sure to tune in.
