MSDN Webcast: REST and Windows Communication Foundation 3.5

A good friend of mine is being featured on this week’s MSDN webast geekSpeak. If you are interested in hearing more about REST and WCF 3.5 from someone with a lot of experience, check out the live webcast tomorrow (September 3) at Noon Pacific Time (you can even call-in since the show is recorded live!). More info available here: MSDN Webcast: REST and Windows Communication Foundation 3.5 with Adnan Masood.

From the geekSpeak site:

The geekSpeak webcast series brings you industry experts in a “talk-radio” format hosted by developer evangelists from Microsoft. This week, distributed systems guru Adnan Masood introduces the Representational State Transfer (REST) architectural style and its design principles, and discusses how they can be implemented using Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) 3.5. Adnan offers guidance and takes questions on when to choose a RESTful design over SOAP-based services and how WCF fits into the spectrum of Microsoft technologies that include ADO.NET Data Services (Astoria) and ASP.NET MVC.

I’m dying to call in and ask how the adoption of WCF 3.5 relates to John McCain’s decision to select Sarah Palin as his VP.

Thanks for the post Rob. The webcast went very well; Since REST is a very broad topic and there were tons of questions, I didn’t get a chance to show all the demos however the sample code can be downloaded from by blog.

To answer your question, WCF 3.5 relates to John McCain’s decision to select Sarah Palin as his VP very closely. My Atom feed (syndication supported in WCF 3.5), just delivered me the following important message:
