Client/Server, N-Tier and SOA: Today and Tomorrow
Join Rocky and Steve in a discussion about the present and future of Microsoft's client/server communication technologies, including Remoting and WCF. Learn whether client/server and n-tier will be replaced by SOA, or whether these architectures can co-exist. Find out how these technologies and concepts apply to you as you build web, Windows client/server and occasionally connected Windows smart client applications. You'll learn about today's options, tomorrow's options and how you can help position yourself to move forward over time.
