Sean Farmar - NServiceBus
Last week we had the pleasure of having Sean Farmar, an independent consultant with over 20 years in software development and expert in SOA and NServiceBus. Farmar conducted many different workshops of varying levels of expertise for our employees. NServiceBus is an implementation of a 'service bus' pattern for .NET. We thoroughly enjoyed having Sean come in and expand our knowledge in this area and look forward to implementing our newfound knowledge into our work.
Here is a takeaway from Bob Aiello, our Director of DevOps: "Sean Farmer explained how to use a technology called nServiceBus to implement robust asynchronous systems that are highly reliable and can handle large volumes of data. The basic principle is to break large transactions into single discrete requests that can be handled on a queue of service requests."
