February 21 – ASP.NET Web Services

We hope you join us in Brentwood at Vaco’s new training room for free food and learning! Come at 6:00 PM for food and get to know other developers in our area. The meeting starts at 6:30 PM and will run to 8:00 or later, depending on how much get into our subject.

Topic: ASP.NET Web Services
Facilitator: Clay McKinney
Location: 5410 Maryland Way, Suite 110, Brentwood, TN 37027
(The meeting room is on the first floor next to the bathrooms.)

Lab: Web Services 101

This lab is aimed at ASP.Net (web forms) programmers who have never created a web service. Beginners are welcome. We will create a simple web service and consume the service from an ASP.Net web page. We will then use the service from an HTML page with jQuery’s Ajax method. We will talk about the difference between SOAP and JSON. We will talk about why web service techniques are useful and how to apply them to your work and projects.

Our next meeting is Thursday, February 21 at Vaco (map) on the first floor at their new training room at 6:00 PM. Bring your laptop, if you have one. Clay McKinney will lead us through building Web Services in ASP.NET.
