I was surprised by the direction the session went. I assumed, based on the title, that it would be lots of details deep down in the call stack within WCF. Ok, there was a fair amount of config file viewing, but most of the time before lunch it was more of a philosophical discussion around how to use WCF in the real world. He gave his view of where WCF is going and it was interesting because he had an angle I've never heard before - WCF is the new .NET.
After lunch he fullfilled my expectations by delivering one code example after another with very complex stuff. In combination with not having any coffee at all during the afternoon it was quite hard to follow, and I might have been off the track for a while.
When it was time to go home for the day, it felt like I had a new view of WCF, both in general as well as in details. It also gave me a theoretical and philosophical perspective on WCF which I haven't expected in the morning. All in all a good day at a conference.
