My good friend Marcus Mac Innes is just back from Amsterdam and posted a lucid report of what he saw at Tech-Ed Europe.
His apartment faces our offices in Dublin, so it is natural for us to occasionally meet and share some ideas.
I can’t wait to have a chat with him again over a good cup of (Italian :-)) coffee!
With Marcus I often talk about many topics, but lately SOA dominates a lot of our conversations.
I’m actually very surprised to read that about 60% of the audience claimed to be currently building SOA based applications.
I suspect that a lot of them are simply creating basic web service façades over their existing applications.
That is so !SOA.
