Messaging Patterns in the Cloud and Azure with Ricardo Villalobos

Note:  Due to the Thanksgiving holiday, our group will meet one week earlier than normal this month.

Messaging patterns are important in the cloud because they facilitate and promote loosely couple architectures, providing models to enable multi-platform connectivity and easy-to-scale solutions. Windows Azure offers different options to implement these patterns, particularly for queuing and pub/sub scenarios. In this session, we´ll walk through a use case that takes advantage of advanced development features offered by the .NET Windows Azure Service Bus SDK, including messaging sessions, filtering, and sorting using Topics and Subscriptions.


Ricardo is a seasoned software architect, with over 15 years of experience designing and creating applications for companies in the Supply Chain Management industry, particularly wholesale distributors and manufacturers. Holding different Microsoft certifications, as well as an MBA in Supply Chain Management from the University of Dallas, he recently joined Microsoft as a Windows Azure Architect Evangelist, helping companies adopt this platform and take advantage of the benefits that cloud computing has brought to the industry. When he is not in front of a computer, Ricardo likes to ride his mountain bike and play tennis during the summer, while improving his skiing skills during the winter in beautiful Colorado.
