This Ain’t Your Pappa’s WCF!


In 15 minutes (and 395 lines of code) Michael ‘Monty’ Montgomery will show you a very different WCF. One that gives ServiceStack’s simplicity a run for its money. All built from simple techniques that you can easily employ yourself. Oh, and did I mentioned it’s easy to test as well? Heck we might even have time to explain why WCF’s as relevant as ever and how all this goodness hints at a Service-oriented Programming Model.
