Part of Microsofta (TM)s radical new WinFX API is the foundation codenamed Indigo, now more formally known as Windows Communication Foundation. WCF is a topic in the same vein as our Jeff Hasan Service-Oriented Architecture book - a technology which allows web service developers to create services that communicate and interoperate with each other and other programs and applications.
There are few books on WCF currently in existence, although there are some planned. WCF developers will be a sizeable audience, given their intermediate-advanced level of expertise and tendency to be early adopters. As there is a dearth of information currently available on WCF in book form, and that we plan to be one of the, if not the, first to market in this area, I suspect this book will quickly become both popular and successful.
