Bill's House O Insomnia : Pro WCF: Practical Microsoft SOA Implementation
I went on a book binge this week and have had my nose buried in WCF all week. There's a lot of really good stuff out there, but without a doubt, Pro WCF: Practical Microsoft SOA Implementation by Chris Peiris is probably my favorite. Well, Bill (I don't have his last name) has given us a nice review of our book. I like the fact he found the MTOM stuff helpful – especially since I wrote the first draft (ch13 he’s referencing). He also indicated several other chapters, another one, 4, that I wrote ......

Himalia - DSL for UX Tier using Windows Presentation Foundation
Been working a bit with DSL and specifically a very cool tool from my company, Avanade. Lot's of folks are hot on DSL's, and their promises, but I've seen quite a bit of promises of full-round-trip tools before. Most required so much work to keep full fidelity between model and reality that at some point we turned off the tool and just disconnected. Now, with the model driver designer capabilities getting so readily available for Visual Studio, with DSL's as well, more people can enter the market. ......
