EastBay.NET: .NET Messaging and the Modern Service Bus

NOTE the date! (Due to a scheduling conflict, we are meeting one week later than normal)

FUNDAMENTALS at 6:15: Visual Studio Bing Code Search

MAIN PRESENTATION at 6:45: .NET Messaging and the Modern Service Bus - Chris Patterson

When learning about distributed application architecture, you've likely read about an Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) or message bus. And it's likely that the words "advanced, complex, or proceed with caution" were included. Modern service buses, however, are approachable, lightweight, and powerful and make it easy to build reliable and maintainable applications with only a working knowledge of messaging and asynchronous processing.

In this talk, I will show you how to use an open-source service bus called MassTransit to build services that communicate via RabbitMQ. In addition to services, I will demonstrate how to build web applications that leverage back-end services via asynchronous messaging, resulting in more reliable and scalable web sites.

Chris Patterson is a Senior Architect for RelayHealth, the connectivity business of the nation's leading healthcare services company.

In his spare time, Chris is an active open-source developer and a primary contributor to MassTransit, a .NET service bus and messaging framework. In 2009, he was awarded the Most Valued Professional award by Microsoft for his technical community contributions.
