Chad and his wife have a son and daughter. **Topic:**Would you fly on an airplane that runs your software? Do you think your process and rigor support the building of a systems as complex as an airplane? The complexity of software continues to rise but our process for building software hasn't really changed. We need a better foundation for building our software systems if we are going to deal with the continual added complexity. Service-Oriented Architectures provides a better foundation for most solutions. With a better foundation and a better plan you can deliver a better solution on a more regular time table. In this talk I will discuss Service-Oriented Architecture and how to implement it using WCF. I will also provide guidance on implementing it within your current agile process.
