Wow, first day at pre-conference started off with a full immersion into the four major additions in .NET 3.0: Communication Foundation, Workflow Foundation, Presentation Foundation and CardSpace. Aaron Skonnard, Keith Brown and Ian Griffiths pulled it off nicely and really managed to give a good insight into these technologies in just about 5 hours.
A lot of notes and a headfull of thoughts later I just wanted to mention that the WCF and WF teams are now comming together to work on the next set of features code-named Silver. We will probably see stuff that people are plumbing themselves today, like tunneling WCF messages in and out of workflows.
Well, gotta go and digest some info. Meanwhile, I recommend visiting the Identity blog for some Internet identity problem-solving discussions.
