New Pluralsight WCF 4 On-Demand Screencast


I have just published the first in a series of new screencasts on WCF 4 for Pluralsight.

The screencast is titled “Introducing Default Endpoints in WCF 4”. In this screencast, I introduce a new configuration improvement in WCF 4 that helps you be more productive by simplifying the configuration experience in WCF.

You can find the new screencast here: http://www.pluralsight-training.net/microsoft/olt/howtovideo.aspx?a=rick-garibay&n=wcf4-default-endpoints. The goal of the screencast is to teach you how seamless getting up and running with WCF 4 is, providing a true File, New Project, F5 experience. I’d love your feedback!

For those of you who may not be aware, Pluralsight is a Microsoft .NET training provider who has established a stellar reputation for being a premier provider of high-quality, razor-focused on-line and classroom training on Microsoft technologies. The talent behind this company is tremendous and I am thrilled to be a part of this team of instructors who share both a passion for Microsoft technologies and a joy for sharing their experience with others to realize the benefits and possibilities of the platform.

One of the cool things about Pluralsight is that their instructors live, eat and breathe the content they cover. The majority of instructors have full time jobs in consulting and/or leading teams in product development around the technologies they cover. I think that this “dog-fooding” approach to training development and delivery makes for a learning experience that is truly unique and worth a nominal membership fee.

So, if you are new to Pluralisight and are considering subscribing to this premier source for authoritative .NET training, please drop me a line and I’d be happy to get the good folks at Pluralisight to work out a trial. I think you’ll be as impressed as I am with the instructors and a very impressive library providing content that is relevant to the work you are doing today as well as cutting edge content to help you prepare for your next project.

I hope you’ll agree, and please, keep the feedback coming!
