I had done a very successful presentation on "Demystifying WSDL" to our Singapore Professional DotNet Usergroup a couple of weeks back. It was a deep technical session that touched base on WSDL and Best Practices of Web Services Deployments.

Needless to say, I couldnt finish all these wonderful technical sesssions on time. There were so much to cover in terms of extending and versioning your Web Services. However, I had time to talk a bit about some of the ways to build a much-more interoperable Web Service and one of the ways is to use Christian Weyer's WS-ContractFirst (WSCF) tool. There are a couple of big events/conferences held later in Singapore this year and I will be able to talk more in details during those events. Stay tuned to this blog for the announcements of the events.

Actually, the tool is just a means to an end. The approach is the one thing that needs to achieve buy-in first. I had rambled about that here and here and finally, I had a chance to demo this to a good crowd of core techies who were definitely intrigued by what I had presented and shown and stayed throughout the session till 2200 hours so they can catch up with me.

All in all, it was a G-R-E-A-T event. Everyone was happy with what they had seen and learnt that night and I would say it was the best meeting we had with the best turnout since the founding of the usergroup.

With INETA APAC's support, I will bring the same topic and theme to Malaysia and hopefully Thailand, Hong Kong, Australia and New Zealand later this year

...and Christian...if you are reading this, you owe me coffee next time I am in your neck of the woods

The bottom line says "Grandfather - Certified Web Services Professional". Technology can make you a Grandfather without becoming a father first...

Go read the specs to find out something you may not know about WSDL...

A strong finish to end the wonderful session. Everyone stayed till the end...with NO enticement of free pizza ! Maybe it is because I showed some WSDL-Indigo concepts right at the end ?
