The Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) framework is being used in almost all .NET development platforms: Windows clients, ASP.NET applications, Windows Phone, Server side applications, and in Windows Azure; but have you ever wondered how WCF works? How you can extend it to your organization’s needs? How to monitor its work? How to tune it for better performance and scalability? WCF is the second largest assembly in the .NET Framework and as complex to understand.
In this 1-day workshop we will deep dive into WCF, learn how to monitor WCF services and how to troubleshoot them, how to tweak our services for better performance, how to secure them with transport and message security and discuss the pros and cons of each technique, and how to extend the WCF service pipeline to accommodate our needs.
