Real-World SOA with Microsoft .NET and Windows Azure
Companies worldwide are enjoying the benefits and efficiencies that can be realized through a well-defined and implement Service-Oriented Architecture strategy. For many, with the recent “go-live” of the Windows Azure platform, intriguing new architectural patterns for distributed, loosely-coupled applications are being made possible, allowing them to fundamentally re-think how they build and consume applications. In this session we explore what it means to realize the benefits of service-oriented architectures on the Microsoft .NET Framework, and see that exposing legacy assets by means of Web services whilst being necessary is not sufficient. We explore various on-premise and off-premise real-world SOA-related capabilities, examine a number of design patterns, and drill-down into what it takes to bridge from on-premise to the Windows Azure platform. Speakers for this session consist of authors from the recently-released “SOA with .NET and Windows Azure” book and also co-authors of the SOA Manifesto.
