Updated Courseware in Windows Communication Foundation 4
December 12, 2011.
Object Innovations today released updated courses on Windows Communication Foundation
for C# and Visual Basic developers using Visual Studio 2010 and .NET 4.0.
Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) is Microsoft’s new framework for building distributed systems.
It unifies and builds on older distributive technologies such as ASP.NET Web services and .NET remoting.
WCF is a large, complex technology. Its sheer size can make it quite intimidating, and the learning curve
can be steep. But if the basic principles
are grasped and you have practice using it in some basic scenarios, you should be equipped to apply it in your
applications and to learn more.
The newest version of the course has simplified the earlier example programs and labs, making it more
approachable for experienced developers who may be relatively new to .NET. The courseware is fully up-to-date
with .NET 4.0 and Visual Studio 2010, including .NET Framework 4 Platform Update 1. The course works well
in conjunction with Object Innovations' recent course on
Windows Workflow Foundation 4
The new Visual Basic version of the course is a major update, catching it up with the C# course. The two
courses are now fully parallel, using .NET 4.0 and incorporating newer material, such as a thorough
introduction to Security in WCF.
Shipments of the new courseware begin immediately.
