Thanks for putting these together. I received our Team Foundation Service Preview account at BUILD, and am now creating a few projects on it. I am starting with smaller projects that we have on our traditional TFS, and will see how the team does with transitioning to TFS-as-a-Service.

Ron, just found this podcast, and the issues brought up are still spot on today. Juval is an excellent spokesperson for WCF. He definitely hit all of the highlights I feel are worth mentioning about WCF. His statement that WCF is like learning another development platform resonated with me. I saw this as a problem, and was inspired to develop a solution for those that sought the benefits of WCF but without the learning curve. There are many businesses out there that need to implement the type of functionality that WCF offers, but not all of them have the expertise and resources to learn and utilize WCF. BizTalk Services (Internet Service Bus) exists, but one still needs to learn WCF. I look forward to more of your podcasts. I'm going to browse through your archives and get caught-up.
