WCF Simplified Series

Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) is Microsoft’s platform for building service-oriented applications. In essence, it can be used for any type of inter-process communication, from processes on the same machine to processes on different machines across the network, written in different languages/runtimes. WCF supports legacy standards like ASMX and also newer ones like WS-*. It is quite robust and extensible, and has support for security, durability, interoperability,  transaction, REST, and service-orientation. We’ll look at some WCF concepts using WCF 4 and Visual Studio 2010.
