As timeline nears for Microsoft TechED Asia 2005 in Singapore (24th-26th August 2005), I have managed to firm up my topics. Besides the usual rather cryptic session topics and synopsis (Sessions  and ), I have added 2 of my own pre-packaged flavours into the mix (Sessions  and ). I hope the latter 2 sessions will be able to provide a cool new refreshing look at distributed computing (Web Services, ESB, EAI, WS-*) to the audiences and hopefully draw in some good crowds.
...so, 4 topics for the Softwaremaker. It is time to get to work on that.
1) Programming Indigo
William introduces Indigo for the first time to the masses in Singapore. He will explain the basis of its design and programming model and looks at the Whys and Whats of it. Indigo is a huge framework and he will bring the audience in for a quick sneak peek of the future of the Windows Communication Foundation and why it is not just another WS-Toolkit.
2) Building Secure Web Services Using Indigo
William introduces Indigo for the first time to the masses in Singapore. He will explain the basis of its design and programming model and looks at the Whys and Whats of it. Indigo is secure-by-default and offers many ways to tap into pre-existing security mechanisms for building connected, un-trusted boundaries. William will also share his thoughts on the interoperability aspects of WS-Security as well as the best way to move forward. William will also explain why WCF != WSE 4.0++.
3) Transactions in Web Services and WS-OtherThings Developers Love to Hate
The above interesting refreshing Title IS the Synopsis. Enough said.
4) SOA, SOAP, WS-*, BP-1.0, WSE, ESB, EDA, WCF, EAI: Making sense of all the FUD
Tired of being fed the same stuff over and over to you again and yet have no idea what you are eating ? If you know these acronyms all too well but have no idea what they meant and how they fit into the grand scheme of things OR if you ever wonder sometimes if they are just fluff or stuff, this interesting refreshing session will address some of your Fears, Uncertainties and Doubts.
Birds Of A Feather Discussion Session Forum
1) Preparing Indigo
2) Migrating ASMX to Indigo
3) SOA, SOAP, WS-*, BP-1.0, WSE, ESB, EDA, WCF, EAI: Making sense of all the FUD
I am also in the midst of assisting INETA
APAC to help co-ordinate a huge joint 3 Usergroups (WHAM BAM BIG BANG) session on one of those TechED nights. Steve Riley
from Corp will, as usual, do what he does best and present on a security topic to all 3 Usergroups (Singapore .NET Usergroup
, Singapore SQL Server Usergroup
, Singapore Windows Usergroup
). There will be a great networking event after his presentation. All in all, this should be a great event and will provide some value to those who cannot make it for the TechED day events.
I hope to see you there.
