  • Post PDC, would I go again ???

    Now that I have been back from the PDC for nearly a month I have been examining whether it was worth going. I should explain that I live in Swizerland which means it is a long journey and as I believe that you have to invest in your career I paid for the trip myself. I also combined the conference with a trip to San Francisco where I  took a helicopter trip over and under the Golden Gate bridge.

  • Service Orientated Architecture

    I attended the PDC and listened to both the Indigo sessions and the Panel discussion at the end of the Architecture Symposium.  I found it very interesting that the Panel had some difficulty in defining exactly what they meant be Service Orientated Architecture and why a new approach was required to complement Object Orientated design and analysis. The definition of a service seemed to a component that communicated with other components using messages.
