Next VB.Net user group: Web services, serialization and networking in .NET Framework 2.0 (Ohad Israeli)

Looks like Ohad is gonna do some serious lecturing this week! I'm totally there. Are you?

This month in the second in our series of presentations on some of the new tools and technologies that are part of the VS 2005 and SQL Server 2005 wave of releases due to arrive in the coming year.  Ohad Israeli, a Senior Consultant with Magen Software Engineering, will cover several topics essential relating to developing web services in .NET.


The .NET Framework 2.0 is all about making it easier to build and run real world Web services. Whether you're looking for more control over serialization and type generation, concerned about performance or just want to run Web services in desktop applications, .NET Framework 2.0 enables you to do it all. This session will take you through a tour of the new Web services and related features in .NET Framework 2.0 including custom serialization, network awareness and standards conformance. This session is a must for all Web services and distributed applications developers.


As always, we'll have our special "Hatzilu" session at our meeting. So please come prepared to discuss your most frustrating problems (or at least some of them!) and to share some of your own techniques and solutions that you have found useful in your applications.

Please remember that it is important for me to know as accurately as possible how many people will be attending each meeting, so that I can arrange for the right amount of food and the proper setup of the chairs.  Please confirm your attendance.

See you there !!
