Main Meeting: Service Stack - David Neal

Whether you are building for mobile, client/server desktop, line of business web applications, or the next social media phenomenon, web services continue to be a critical ingredient of scalable architecture.
In this talk we will look at the features of ServiceStack, a mature suite of open-source libraries for building “obscenely fast” web services in a very short amount of time.

Neal is a father, geek, musician, and software developer living near Chattanooga, TN.
He has spent the last several years building high-performance, scalable web applications, and currently works at LeanKit as a Developer Advocate.
David served as president of the Nashville .NET User Group for 2012 and 2013.
David is passionate about software craftsmanship, user experience, music, and bacon.

You can find David on Twitter as @reverentgeek

    This was a good introduction to Service Stack. The one point I took away was that ServiceStack had good performance.

    Some things that would strengthen this speech is have a demo of why it's faster than Web API. I might have had a messaging demo so that the audience could understand how that helps people scale vertically. Another strategy to showing how easy it is to build an app, is to actually build an application from scratch. That way people see the details and nitty gritty of building and app and can compare that to the same with WebAPI. If the audience is full of coders it's ok to show line by line how something works. Thanks again for making the 7 hour trek and giving a good ServiceStack Summary.
