I read this useful article @ InfoQ (http://www.infoq.com/news/2008/03/wcf-metro-interop). Its really interesting to see how top distributed computing technologies at Sun (Metro) and Microsoft (WCF) are interoperable. On the very basic level all the web services are supposed to be interoperable on WS-I basic profile. But when it comes to more advances WS-* protocols like WS-Security, WS-Atomic Transaction, WS-Reliable Messaging etc. thats when interoperability problems come to the surface. Its a great initiative from Sun and Microsoft. For more details on the interoperability results do check out Harold Carr’s blog(http://weblogs.java.net/blog/haroldcarr/archive/2008/03/metro_web_servi_2.html).
On behalf of MS Learning and the WPF team, I am happy to announce the availability of .NET Framework 3.0 eLearning clinics. This collection includes a 2 hour premium WPF eClinic as well! For WPF, we also used Captivate to demo WPF runtime apps, which result in a much richer experience than what you would expect in traditional eClinic demos. Check them out, and spread the word.
Pricing: FREE till launch of .NET FX. US $9.99 after that.
Spread the word: Please spread the word with your customers on community portal and Newsletters. Bloggers: Please blog about this, especially the fact that these are FREE till launch. This will also help create awareness prior to launch.
