On Thursday morning, I attended Christian Wenz's talk about Microsoft's ASP.NET, Web Services, and PHP. He began with a short introduction to Web Services and XML. Then he demonstrated building and using Web Services using Microsoft's ASP.NET and C#. Then he discussed how this relates to PHP. Is PHP dead? Can it compete?
He then discussed a few ways that you can both produce and use Web Services using various PHP modules. It's not as easy as Microsoft makes it, but it's certainly not impossible. And it's only going to get easier as time goes on.
I actually learned more from this talk about ASP.NET than I did about PHP. I feel like I understand both technologies better as a result.
