WCF in .NET 4 includes an implementation of the WS-Discovery protocol.  Sounds exciting right?  Actually it is very cool because it allows you to build applications and services that can discover other services using UDP multicast messages or via a discovery proxy.  In this episode I'll walk through the Service Discovery lab where we build a messenger style application I call "ChatWOW".  In this lab you will see how to make your service discoverable and how you can discover other services.  Later when Beta 1 is released, you can try it yourself.

Update: The WCF/WF4 Training Kit is now live at http://code.msdn.microsoft.com/wcfwf4 so you can try it yourself.
