31st March: .NET Virtual Meetup - 'From WCF to gRPC'

  • Tuesday, 31 March 2020
  • 08:00 PM - 09:30 PM

iO Associates are excited to announce our first iO Virtual Meetup. This new platform will allow us to reach more of our community and get the most in-demand speakers on your choice of topics! This meetup will be taking place on the 31st March at 8pm and will feature special guest speaker Mark Rendle who will be speaking on 'From WCF to gRPC'.

gRPC is a high-performance messaging protocol that is ideal for communication between microservices and other clients on internal networks. It's the ideal replacement for WCF or .NET Remoting, which are not supported on .NET Core.

In this talk, Mark will explain the different models that gRPC enables, from Request/Response to full bi-directional streaming, and how they map to various WCF models. He'll walk you through how to create gRPC services and clients using the dotnet CLI, and share best practices for using them in the real world.

There will be opportunities to raise questions and queries you wish to discuss at the end.

8:00 pm: Introduction by iO Associates and Speaker
8:05 pm: Mark Rendle- 'From WCF to gRPC'
9:00 pm: Q&A - Questions from the floor
9:15 pm: Concluding Comments and end

​​About the Speaker
Mark Rendle is a Microsoft Azure Development MVP and a well known speaker – his career in software design and development spans three decades and more programming languages than he can remember. C# has been his favourite language pretty much since the first public beta, when you had to write the code in a text editor and compile it on the command line. Things vying for Mark’s attention lately include .NET Core, Docker and all the new things on the Azure Cloud platforms.
