Learning Tree Introduces New Course — Programming .NET Web Services: A Comprehensive Hands-On Introduction

RESTON, VA (March 25, 2010)
Learning Tree International (NASDAQ NGM: LTRE) has announced the introduction of a new course entitled Programming .NET Web Services: A Comprehensive Hands-On Introduction. In this course, attendees will employ five distinct web service frameworks that are supported with versions 2.0 to 4 of .NET, and find out where each can be best applied. Our course materials will also cover the knowledge necessary to employ the tools provided by Visual Studio to integrate web services into a wide variety of client applications: Desktop applications with Windows Forms and WPF, web applications with ASP.NET and Microsoft Ajax Library, and Rich Internet Applications (RIA) with Silverlight.

Throughout this four-day course, an expert instructor will lead attendees through practical, hands-on exercises, building web services with .NET. Exercises, completed in either C# or Visual Basic, include:

  • Coding ASMX services and clients
  • Building interoperable and performatory WCF services
  • Locating services dynamically with discovery
  • Connecting WPF, Silverlight, ASP.NET and Ajax clients to .NET services
  • Mapping long-running business processes to services with WF
  • Deploying and managing services with Windows Server AppFabric

“.NET technologies are critical to the development of today’s leading-edge Internet applications,” commented Jennifer Urick, Vice President of Product Development for Learning Tree International. “This course will help web developers ensure they can apply the latest technologies to enhancing their organization’s web applications.”

Attendees have three ways to attend this course:

1. Learning Tree will begin presenting Programming .NET Web Services: A Comprehensive Hands-On Introduction at its Education Centers in the U.S. in April 2010, and Canada in May 2010.
