Distributed systems with Azure Service Fabric

In September I hope that everyone is back from vacation and ready another NNUG meetup. 

We are proud to have Magnus Mårtensson in Oslo to kick off this fall with a presentation about Azure Service Fabric. 

About Magnus:

Magnus is Founder/CEO of Loftysoft a Microsoft Regional Director and a Microsoft Azure Most Valuable Professional. He is a consultant, tutor, process coach, technical lead and an international speaker. Some of his passions include connecting with audiences and organizing online and global conferences such as CloudBurst and GlobalAzure Bootcamp. As the first Azure MVP in the Nordic countries in 2012 he was awarded MVP of the year. He is also an Azure Insider, an Azure Advisor and an ASP.NET Insider and is a go-to person for Microsoft regarding Enterprise Cloud Consulting. Magnus has been a consultant for over 1½ decade and has the maximum possible experience time consulting on the Azure Platform.


Service Fabric is a state-of-the-art distributed system that allows developers to easily build and IT-Pros to easily manage large scale, highly resilient services for your Enterprise. We are all going through the same transition with our businesses: We want our services to be quick to build and maintain, effective to manage, preferably cheap, but also robust and resilient enough to reach Internet scale without falling apart. Microsoft has solved this challenge is now making available to everyone the Platform they built for running and hosting global services with the highest availability demands, such as Azure SQL Database, Azure DocumentDB, and Bing Cortana. This session will give an overview of Service Fabric, share some war stories from using it and show some examples which will open your eyes to a great new world of distributed, infinitely scalable services that cannot die! Platform services PaaS is the future of the Cloud!

    Not the speaker's fault, but I feel this is yet another speech about how good Service Fabric is without really explaining how to leverage the platform.

    I totally buy the deployment / devops story, but that really doesn't help me as a developer. Designing something based on the actor model requires a different mindset, and I would like to see code and models showing this.

    Then there is Akka.NET, which is different from Service Fabric and Microsoft Orleans. Not so much in theory, perhaps, but definitely in implementation. I would like some help on how to figure out which one is the better fit?

    As a "backend" web programmer, I would like to see end to end examples in code, based on ASP.NET MVC, Web Api and / or SignalR.

      I think actually this was a discussion between Magnus and some of the guys at the beer. Maybe someone can give the short version? :)
