SOAP and WSDL explained

The S stands for Simple

This is a great article that lays out the weirdness behind SOAP, WSDL and other "simple" web service APIs in a very funny dialogue between a dev and a "SOAP guy". My head hurts every time I look at the weirdness of SOAP. Thankfully, I don’t have to do this for my day job, just when I’m poking around at various web APIs (Amazon, Smugmug, etc.) for personal coding projects.
