I’ve been to a number of technical events over the years. Some of them were interesting and informational while others not. Over the last couple of days though, I had the great opportunity to attend a very interesting one, one that rarely takes place. Michael and Daniel presented a Microsoft Hellas sponsored workshop on building real world SOA applications using Microsoft .Net 3.0. Beyond the new .Net technologies which were discussed (but were already familiar to me), this event gave me the opportunity to see, proven at practice, architectural patterns for building Service Oriented applications. I hope that this is only the beginning and that similar events will take place in the future.
