In the web services community, few terms are as loaded as "Service Orientation" (or SOA, or SO). Over time, the term has become so convulted that it's hard to identlfy its real meaning. My conversations with developers and architects tends to support that
theory. In this screencast, I describe service orientation in practical terms and highlight the role WCF plays in building service oriented applications. It is my hope that the concepts I outline remove much of the fog that has collected around service orientation
/ SOA, and also help illustrate the role WCF plays in the service oriented arena.
