In this post I’ll explain, what you need to do to run the Windows Identity Foundation samples I’ve created for TechDays. I’ll post a description on the Windows Azure AppFabric samples in a separate post!
You will notice, that for both sessions I used the same startup-example, a little shop-scenario that consists of two web applications (a shop front-end and a payment management front-end as well as a payment-backend implemented as WCF web service):
