I've been getting a lot of mail feedback about the Workflow Foundation Videos that are linked to from the NetFx3 site so I thought I'd draw together the WCF videos that I made as well in one place (I can't remember whether I've done this before on a single post but if I have then I can't find it).

Generally, these WCF videos are slightly out of date with respect to the current Rc1 bits but the principles should all still pretty much apply.

Update ( December, 2009) - I know people still come across this post because they mail me and tell me :-) Two things to bear in mind - one is that I've done my best to locate all the videos desipte the MSDN folks moving their hyperlinks around on me :-) The second is that these videos were made on a beta/preview and things changed after they were made so bear that in mind if you're watching them.

Here's the run-down;

Windows Communication Foundation:" Hello World"

The Windows Communication Foundation is a new framework for building distributed applications. In this session we'll take a look at the basics of getting an application up and running

Windows Communication Foundation: Type Serialization

The WCF offers a number of different serialization technologies for turning .NET object types into XML for transmission across service boundaries. This session explores what's available.

Windows Communication Foundation: DataContract Serialization

Windows Communication Foundation: Typed and Untyped Messages

The WCF has a lot of flexibility in the way in which it goes from .NET objects to SOAP messages. It can handle parameters and typed/untyped messages. Let's take a look.

Windows Communication Foundation: Bindings

A great deal of power and flexibility comes from the use of bindings in the WCF to specify communication details. Here we explore a little of the standard bindings and how we can configure them.

Windows Communication Foundation: Message Encoding

Windows Communication Foundation: Sessions

The WCF has facilities for maintaining a session of messages between a client and a service. In this session we'll take a look at how we can make use of those facilities.

Windows Communication Foundation: Instancing

WCF services can be singletons, they can be single-call objects or they can have a lifetime that is tied to the session. Let's dive into how we make this work.

Windows Communication Foundation: Concurrency

In an server side development, concurrency always crops up and the WCF is no exception. Here we explore the options for single and multi-threaded services.

Windows Communication Foundation: Exceptions

Every piece of code needs to think about how to deal with exceptions - the WCF has particular mechanisms for translating .NET exceptions into SOAP faults which we explore here.

Windows Communication Foundation: Transactions

The WCF has facilities for coordinating work done by multiple pieces of software under a single atomic transaction. In this session we'll look at getting that set up and working.

Windows Communication Foundation: HTTPS Transport Security
