Please join us at the next meeting of the Los Angeles .NET Developers Group

Monday June 3, 2002, 6:30 pm to 9:30 pm @ UCLA Campus,
Dodd Hall, Room 175 (room subject to change).

Speaker: Ken Getz

Topic: Web Services -- Beyond the Basics

6:30 pm - 7:00 pm: Networking, registration, pizza, and soft drinks.

*There is no charge for admission. Members are asked to voluntarily
contribute $7 to cover the cost of refreshments.

It's simple to get started creating Web services in VS .NET, but once you
get past the basics, what's next? In this session, you'll learn about some
"next steps", including exception handling, an introduction to
authentication, calling Web services asynchronously, using XML shaping,
using XML Web Services to provide common content across multiple
applications, and transferring binary information using Web Services. If
you've got the basics down, it's time to move on to the next level.
