QCon is an amazing conference. Maybe 300+ attendees and about 100+ speakers. It is targeted at enterprise developers, and is not for the 'next, next, finish' developer. There feels a definite lack of .Net here at the conference (I mean other than the specific .Net track) but there is a good Java, Python, Ruby, etc. feel which makes me not feel too out ......

"Can I get a CustomerService with that?" "No." Why do we always gravitate towards the data centric services? I honestly believe its because its just easier to do. Data is always defined, whether its in DDL (CREATE TABLE ( Name char(4));) or in C# (private string _name;) we have solid ways to define data. These names and definitions make it easier for ......

I am having a bit of a reflective night, and wanted to share some thoughts about moving towards service based architectures. PhatBoyG asked me "What is changing, now that you are spending more time working on MassTransit, about the way you architect solutions?" At first blush, I thought about messages and windows services, but as I have had more time ......

Since the beginning of my foray into SOA I have heard about composing services to 'write' new services. I have never really understood how this was supposed to work. Although, vague thoughts of Windows Workflow style wizards do come to mind. One of the first books that I have read on the subject 'SOA in practice'(2) even laid out yet another layered ......

So I learned a lesson this week (Well actually a while ago now). Window's services have this neat feature called 'Service Dependencies.' This aspect of windows lets you set certain 'wait for it' dependencies! Awesome, this means if your service needs SQL or MSMQ to be started before it can start working windows will make sure this happens. I admit I ......

Dru![wow] Well, Chris and I are driving home from KaizenConf and we are still reeling a bit from all of the conversations that we had. As usual, with this group of committed students and teachers I am left feeling comforted and secured in not only the way I approach software development, but also in the way I continue to seek a better way to approach ......

Over the past couple of months I have been thinking a lot about self-documenting systems. It all started when I was working on MassTransit's Subscription Manager and I realized that I could display this information of a web page and that would be really nice information to see. Well the current MTA has that. This week I had a new idea, what if I could ......

Hi Adam, How can multiple services subscribe to the same message but only have it delivered once? I am thinking of redundancy and load balancing scenarios where I have multiple clients processing messages. I think that you are referring to a competing consumer pattern. Assuming this is correct this is how I would go about solving it in MT. In masstransit, ......

I was having a discussion with a friend about MassTransit about the purpose of the subscription (pubsub) service in MT, and I thought I would address the issue here. Basically, the subscription service is what allows us to 'publish' messages. At a high level, before the bus does a publish it consults with the subscription service to see if there are ......

What a crazy weekend. I am glad I got home with some time to rest, because we ran non-stop the whole time. Whether we were exploring the island of Manhattan or talking philosophical discussions about OMeta# and hard disk buffers we were having a ball. I have learned about OMeta# and DotLucene, going to have to check these projects out. Went through ......

I just want to give a shout out to the people at MidWest who actually studiied queing theory, and have people board the plan in reverse order. Bravo! -d

Hello True Believers, I am excited to announce the release of the 0.3 Mass Transit has occurred and is available on the site. So what's been going on the last 2 months? Well, first Chris and I each took a much needed break after the 0.2 release which saw a lot of API changes as we took what we learning from real work and incorporating it into the project. ......

A friend of mine started a blog called make stuff with your kid If you have kids and want to get them back into the physical world this blog should provide some interesting activities. Heck, he's talking about making all kinds of stuff and then showing us noobs how to do it as well! Cool stuff, -d ......

Please note that this is pre-AutoMap which I haven't dived into yet, but I thought it would be nice to share none-the-less. public class LeadMap : ClassMap { public LeadMap() { Id(o => o.Id); Map(o => o.CreatedOn); Component(o => o.Company, x => { x.Map(m => m.Name); x.Map(m => m.Address); x.Map(m => m.Website); x.Map(m => m.Telephone); ......

Just a quick post about FluentNHibernate. Its such a simple project that is really going to take NHibernate to a new level. The basics are there, and although the AutoMap stuff has just been committed I have already found a feature that has made it a must have: fluent configuration. var properties = PostgreSQLConfiguration .PostgreSQL82 .ConnectionString.Is("User ......
