REST Services Through WCF
Presented by Haider Sabri, Senior Software Engineer, speakTECH

Microsoft's Connected System Division (CSD) was created about two years ago to unify Microsoft's Distributed Systems Group (DSG) and the Business Process/Integration Division (BPID). The DSG oversaw the Windows Communication Foundation (WCF), Web Services Enhancements (WSE), InfoCard, MSMQ, Active Directory and Microsoft Identity Integration Server (MIIS). BPID included BizTalk Server, Host Integration Server, Commerce Server, RFID, Industry Standard Accelerators and Windows Workflow Services (code-named "Windows OE").
