    The Discussion

      Watched this Webcast and I must say it is quite informative. Problem I had was that as a newbie to WCF and Networking, I did not quite understand the REST presentation as much as I would have loved to. The use of attributes WEBGET and WEBINVOKE as well. I do hope we get more webcasts in the future to explain more on these and expand on WCF as well.
