UPCOMING PRESENTATION (Tuesday May 24th 6-8PM) - Michael Stiefel (Reliable Software) on 'Securing Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) with Microsoft's WSE 2.0'.
Securing Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) with Microsoft's WSE 2.0
Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) is an architectural style that enables business to quickly adapt and build software applications to meet changing customer needs. These applications are typically implemented as Web services. Since these applications often span trust boundaries, security is an essential part of these applications. Microsoft's Web Service Enhancements 2.0 enables developers to secure Web services using industry standard specifications such as WS-Security. Using a case study, this talk will illustrate how to secure a SOA using WSE 2.0.
Michael Stiefel, principal of Reliable Software, Inc. is a consultant on software architecture and development, and the alignment of information technology with business goals. He is also the author of the book - 'Application Development Using C# and .Net'. See our website for more details..
This presentation is sponsored by Franklins.Net , Corporate Systems Associates Inc. of Hartford, InSource Consulting and KeyTech LLC.
RHS comes to CTDOTNET on Tuesday July 5th. Topic: C# 2.0: Generics, Iterators and New Language Features.
We all are looking forward to this one!
I am a lucky winner of the Graphics Server .NET 2.5 package that was a prize in the Larkware Readership Survey drawing. Looking forward to checking this package out soon!
In addition to the recent Larkware's readership survey results, gathering statistics about development languages and platforms is important for decision-making by book-authors and IT management. A recent poll by ComputerWorld shows C# in the top 5 (with 72%) and .NET as the preferred platform/API (at 51%). The survey by ComputerWorld had another interesting facet - 86% of the responses were from large enterprises ( > 100 employees).
Maestro Gunderloy has released the 'Larkware Reader Survey' results. A sample size of 485 unearthed some interesting results, notably below, which highlights the position of VB6 vis-a-vis VB.NET. Perhaps, the VB6 petition is seriously lacking supporting statistics?
Which (if any) of these languages do you do serious development work with? (This was a "pick many" question, so the percentages add up to more than 100%)
VB 6.0: 148 (31.3%)
VB.NET: 195 (41.3%)
C#: 338 (71.6%)
C++: 134 (28.4%)
Java: 78 (16.5%)
SmallTalk: 3 (0.6%)
Python: 57 (12.1%)
Perl: 33 (7.0%)
PHP: 43 (9.1%)
Ruby: 18 (3.8%)
There's a good example (in C#) by Urmila Singhal on using Recursion to delete nodes in an XML document. One can delete all occurences of an XML node from an XML doc by providing a node name or with an optional attribute name of the nodes to be deleted.
Carl has made available a lot of very funny MP3 audio clips from his Mondays show - my favorite one is about the Harvard Economics Professor's horse sense. I am glad I studied Economics elsewhere.. :-)
