Technical Presentation 

REST and WCF 3.5

Speaker: Glen G. Gordon

The version 3.5 of the .NET framework introduces new web capabilities in Windows Communication Foundation, enabling developers to easily and quickly implement RESTful services. This presentation will examine webHttpBinding(the new WCF binding that enables the development of these services), as well as dive into the various configuration options. We will discuss the basic principles behind REST based architectures and illustrate the development of these services, as well as how to consume them in various technologies such as ASP.NET AJAX and Silverlight.
