I’ve been dipping my toes into Windows Communication Foundation for a couple articles for The Book. Windows Communication Foundation, Hands-on! is proving to be a great resource for learing WCF. It’s lab-based and works step-by-step to get you going in WCF. It’s written by three guys from Microsoft’s Developer and Platform Evangelism group, and all three have intimate knowledge of WCF’s workings.
I’ll post a more in-depth review of it later, but thought I’d toss this blurb out for now. It’s a great book (so far), marred only by some deltas between the CTP version they wrote about in the book and what’s working in the current version — still, it’s not a major stumbling block and is something you should expect if you’re working with bleeding edge technology.
Also, be sure to check out Michele Leroux Bustamante’s site supporting her upcoming book Learning Windows Communication Foundation. More good info from a very smart lady.
