Notable SOA experts and pundits are getting together to explore the future of SOA at the ZapForum evening networking event in Washington, DC on October 1, 2009 from 5:30PM to 8:30PM. At ZapForum DC, dozens of experts, pundits, and influential guests will gather for an evening of networking and discussion on the topics of Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) and Enterprise Architecture (EA). Open to public enrollment and attendance, the ZapForum events provide a way to encourage dialogue, networking, and communication within the SOA and EA communities.

"The enterprise architect and SOA communities needs more opportunities to communicate and network in a face-to-face, low cost, low pressure environment," said Ronald Schmelzer, Managing Partner with ZapThink, LLC. "ZapThink's ZapForum events provide an excellent venue and opportunity for practitioners, experts, pundits, advisors, consulting firms, vendors, and influencers to network and interact and help grow the EA and SOA industry."
