March Phoenix Connected Systems User Group Meeting this Thursday 3/12!

Web services allow users to communicate with applications over a network. This works great in intranet and internet scenarios, but what happens when you want to expose or consume a service that is behind a firewall or home/office router?


Join Todd Sussman, PCSUG Co-President, and Connected Systems Practice Lead at Neudesic as he shows you how to expose and consume services across the largest network in the world, even behind a home or corporate firewall using the .NET Service Bus and a BizTalk RFID client.

Meeting Place: Microsoft District Office - 2929 N. Central Avenue, Suite 1400, Phoenix, AZ

Meeting Time: Thursday, March 12 6pm to 7:30pm

The first 10 people through the door will get a free copy of the October 2008 draft specification “The Oslo Modeling Language”, which provides an introduction, and extensive coverage of ‘M’, a new imperative language for describing models in the technology family code-named Oslo.

Pizza will be served at 6 pm and we will get started shortly thereafter.  

Hope to see you there!

More about PCSUG:

The goal of the Phoenix Connected Systems User Group is to educate, evangelize and inform the community about the direction in which the Microsoft Connected Systems Division (and software engineering) is going, and how developers and architects of various, yet intersecting disciplines can start to prepare for what is ahead while serving the community through knowledge sharing and evangelism of current shipping technologies.

We meet the 2nd Thursday of each month at the Microsoft District Office - 2929 N. Central Avenue, Suite 1400, Phoenix, AZ from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm.
