5 Sessions -
13 Hours of Interactive Training

Web services allow different kinds of software to communicate. In the ASP.NET Web Services Fundamentals course from LearnKey, developers of Internet applications will learn how to create and consume web services built using ASP.NET. Expert instructor Bruce Johnson will also help you understand how the SOAP protocol acts as transport for web services, use the XML Schema standard to define and validate SOAP documents, and discover solutions to common development problems using current and evolving standards like WSDL and WS-Security.

Benefits
  • Apply web services as business solutions
  • Enhance employment opportunities with IT development knowledge
  • Gain new skills in a useful, productive manner
