Web services -- like the distributed computing models that came before it, CORBA and DCOM -- focuses on making computing resources available to the network regardless of where they are physically located. Unlike its predecessors, however, Web services have avoided some of the problems that plagued these earlier attempts: tight coupling and proprietary technology. This talk will present the technology stack upon which Web Services are built, the ongoing efforts to standardize Web services interoperability, and a closer look at how Microsoft .NET implements the Web Services spec. There will be short demonstrations of building and consuming Web Services on the .NET platform.
