Dear blog, it’s been a while since my last post

Monday, January 16, 2012

If you’ve been wondering where I disappeared to in the last couple of weeks, and if you are still waiting anxiously for my next post about WCF 4.5, fear not, I’m here, I’m alive, and I’m still kicking. It’s been quite a rough month, as I have been occupied knee deep in home renovations. If you’ve ever dealt with contractors, technicians, and handyman, you know the type of frustration I’m talking about. Between re-tiling my floors, replacing my kitchen cabinets, and re-painting my entire home, I also managed to find the time to deliver some courses on...

New course on the shelve – Advanced WCF

Friday, August 19, 2011

A few months ago I had my Advanced WCF workshop in Sela’s DevDays. The workshop was a great success and the classroom was packed with 50 people that came to learn about advanced WCF stuff such as monitoring techniques, performance considerations, best practices for client development, and ways to extend WCF.

So if you would like to learn about advanced WCF techniques from the people who wrote...

I can’t even fix a small typo I found in one of the chapters. It is not my intention to complain about what I’ve gone through in the last eight months, but rather reminisce the last year of my life, like you reminisce going to boot camp (“Tironut”). We started preparing for this course during November of last year, around the time of the PDC. Little did...

WCF 4 – Microsoft’s official course in Israel for the first time

Wednesday, August 11, 2010

Recently, I had the pleasure of passing the first Microsoft’s official WCF 4 course in Israel in its beta version (the course hasn’t been officially released yet). The course, developed by several of Sela’s experts in the past seven months, is part of the new set of courses Microsoft offers for .NET 4 and Visual Studio 2010. It was a bit strange to give a course I’ve spend the last couple of months writing, but I enjoyed it very much, and the crowd (21 people) was great and asked a lot of interesting questions. We (the...
