What's with IIS and Apache

How does IIS7 stack up against Apache? Bill Staples, who runs the server products within the Developer Division – Web Server, Media Server and Commerce Server recently wrote a great blog that talks about IIS versus Apache. It is a very well written piece and for those of you interested in understanding what's going on in the web server space and how IIS compares against other offerings, this is a good read.

Seminar on SOA

Next week, I am attending a breakfast seminar on bridging Service Oriented Architecture organized by Object Sharp Consulting. Thanks to Rob Windsor who informed me about it.

I am currently writing a thesis on 'Interoperability between Disparate Systems' . I am sure this seminar will feed some ideas to facilitate in polishing up my thesis.

Cheers,
