Service Oriented Architecture

From Wikipedia:

In software engineering, a Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) is a set of principles and methodologies for designing and developing software in the form of interoperable services. These services are well-defined business functionalities that are built as software components (discrete pieces of code and/or data structures) that can be reused for different purposes.

Buzz is annoying and confusing, and Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) has gotten it's fair share of buzz.


Ken Ballard, a 14 year Microsoft Stack veteran and Lead Application Developer at Chicago's award winning digital agency Oncall Interactive, will walk past the buzz into a real world case study. We will collaboratively explore topics such as Windows Communication Foundation (WCF), Enterprise Service Buses (ESB's), and Command Query Separation (CQS) to move from abstract understanding of SOA to concrete implementation.
