Windows Communication Foundation Using C#

This Windows Communication Foundation Using C# training class provides a thorough grounding in this important technology. The first chapter covers the essential concepts and shows how to implement WCF services and clients. The “ABC” of address, binding and contracts are covered in detail. Service contracts and data contracts are explained, and instance management is covered. The course includes a discussion of error handling and security and concludes with coverage of the WCF Routing Service.

The course uses Visual Studio 2017 with .NET 4.6.1. The course discusses new features of WCF 4.5, including new bindings and support for the task-based asynchronous pattern and WebSockets. A large number of working examples and lab exercises are provided.

Goals
  1. Learn what WCF is, and how it unites existing distribution mechanisms.
  2. Gain an understanding of addressing and binding in WCF services.
  3. Use service contracts and data contracts.

We had employees from several different departments and all learned something new. The class moved along at a good pace but still left room for questions and plenty of hands on time.
