Course Description

Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) is Microsoftâ??s new framework for building distributed systems. It unifies and builds on the diverse set of existing distribution mechanisms, which include ASP.NET Web services and .NET r emoting. WCF enables devel opers to produce highly configurable, secure, reliable and transactional services using a single simplified programming model. And since WCF supports the WS - * series of Web service standards, it enables simple interoperation with other platforms and techno logies. This 3 day course provides a thorough grounding in this important technology. The first chapter covers the essential concepts and shows how to implement WCF services and clients. The "ABC" of address, binding and contracts are covered in detail. Service contracts and data contracts are elaborated, and instance mana gement is covered. The course includes a discussion of error handling and security and concludes with cove rage of the WCF Routing Service . A large number of working examples and lab exer cises are pr ovided. The course uses .NET 4.5 and Visual Studio 2012
Course Length: 3 Days
Course Tuition: $1390 (US)


Students should have a good working knowledge of building .NET applications with C#. Kn owledge of building distributed systems and Web services will also be an advantage.

C# Programming Uses & Stats

C# Programming is Used For:
Windows Applications Business Enterprise Applications Software Development Web Applications
Year Created
In Demand: 
C# along with Java is one of the top languages in demand for employers. 
.Net Library:
C# is integrated with the .Net Library thereby providing access to a vast archive of functionality and support. 
Team Friendly:
Multiple developers can easily work together on a project. 
Compiled Language:
The code that is stored on a public-facing server is in binary form. In other words, if your server gets hacked, the hacker doesn't automatically have access to your source code. 
C# roots are derived from C which means that the structure is transferable to other languages like Java, Objective C, PHP and C++. 

Steep Learning Curve:
For beginners, C# is not the easiest program to start with. 

Windows Application Exclusively:
Any .NET application needs a Windows platform to execute which means that companies using Linux servers would need Windows hosting to run a .Net application. 
Lack of Support for Older .NET:
Many enterprise organizations keep older operating systems because of the many problems that an upgrade can bring to the platform. Microsoft stops supporting older .NET frameworks after a few operating systems upgrades.

Complimentary Skills to have along with C# Programming

Since the .NET development ecosystem spans a wide array of capabilities and tools, it is difficult for .NET developers to know which .NET development skills and training to pursue in order to increase their marketability — and earning potential.  For that reason, learning supplemental languages such as Java, JavaScript, Python, C/C++, and others is expected in today’s competitive skill-set driven playing field.
