Our first meeting will be May 8, 2008 from 6:00 - 9:00 PM at
the Gwinnett Justice And Administration Building (let's call it "The Hall Of Justice"), Conference Room A Gwinnett Technical College, Building 100, Room 401.
Our speaker for the first session will be Doug Turnure from Microsoft. Doug is an excellent presenter and all around great guy who's presentation will be New features in WCF 3.5: REST, JSON, and Syndication.
Here's the summary:
The web has become a huge set of connected data that adheres to a set of standards and protocols. The foundational aspects of the web are the importance of URI composition, the proliferation of HTTP GET, and the descriptive nature of the Content-Type header. Built on WCF extensibility points in the .NET Framework 3.0, WCF in the .NET Framework 3.5 includes first-class support for building services that embrace these tenets of the web. This includes building and consuming syndications, communicating with AJAX applications, Silverlight, etc. This presentation briefly describes the tenets of the web in more detail, then pivots to a detailed discussion of the new Web-centric features of WCF in the .NET Framework 3.5.
The speaker for our second session will be Noah Subrin who lives here in Gwinnett and has created several developer courses and published several articles on www.sswug.org in addition to being a Technical Lead at SRA International. His presentation is You Got The Silver (A Look At Workflow Services). Noah was one of the presenters at the Atlanta Code Camp back at the end of last month.
