Finally.... I've been able to spend some much anticipated time with Indigo this weekend, although much of it came in place of sleep. As previously mentioned, one of my summer goals was to spend some quality time getting to know WSE (2&3) and Indigo. So far I'm digging it. It makes sense.
I noticed David Pallman's "Programming Indigo : Code Name for the Unified Framework for Building Service-Oriented Applications on the Microsoft Windows Platform Beta Edition" book on the shelf at the book store the other day and decided it was as good as place as any to get the ball rolling. This seems like an excellent book. Accurate, thorough, without any of the pre-release crap you often find in early books. The sample code even compiles!
I also spent some time on some blogs that are new and old to my reading list which I'll include here to remember (In no specific order):

And now, with the time reaching 1:10 pm and the temperature at a lovely 88°F it's time for me to head down to the pool for Kris and Ernie's pre-wedding pool party. Congrats to them both!
