WCF 2012, Part 1 of 3: Fundamentals

with Joe Mayo

In this course, you will learn the fundamentals of Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) Services, how to create and consume Web Services and REST services, and how to use the Service Model Metadata Utility (SvcUtil.exe). You will learn what Web Services are and why you would want to use them. Then you will learn how to create a Web Service. This includes writing types with classes and interfaces and decorating those types with declarative information so that WCF can expose them as a Web Service. When building REST Services, you will also learn how to return data in different formats, such as XML and JSON. You will also learn how to build clients that consume both Web Services and REST Services. You will also learn about the Service Model Metadata Utility (SvcUtil.exe).
