Here is the info about the class, the WCF Master Class in Zürich which I tripped over. Based on feedback from colleagues in South-Africa who have attended these classes and personally knowing Juval, I can only recommend this event to everyone who is exposed to and embroiled with Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) technology. The following is quoted “as is” in italic:
WCF Master Class
About the Class:
The WCF Master Class is a 5 days training, and is the world's best, most intense WCF training.
While the class shows how to use WCF, it set the focus on the 'why' and the rationale behind particular design decisions, often shedding light on poorly-documented and understood aspects. You will learn not only WCF programming, but also relevant design guidelines, best practices, and pitfalls. The material presented includes IDesign's original techniques and utilities and goes well beyond anything you can find in conventional sources. The objective of the class is not to just make you a WCF expert, but also a better software engineer. On top of the frontal presentations, the class uses lab exercise and numerous (100+) conceptual demos and original tools and utilities. Attendees will find the demos useful not only in class but after it. The demos serve as a starting point for new projects, and as a rich reference and samples source. Don't miss on this unique opportunity to learn WCF from Juval Lowy who has been part of the strategic design effort for WCF from the beginning, and who offers a profound insight on the technology and its applications
We conducted our classes at many companies big and small, including companies such as CityGroup, KPMG, Philips and Disney. Please click here for student testimonials.
Here is Juval's personal bio in case you need to share it with others.
