In a couple weeks, I’ll be invading Houston, TX to deliver a pair of sessions at Microsoft TechEd. This conference – one of the largest annual Microsoft events – focuses on technology available today for developers and IT professionals. I made a pair of proposals to this conference back in January (hoping to increase my […]

Using SnapLogic to Link (Cloud) Apps

March 24, 2014

I like being exposed to new technologies, so I reached out to the folks at SnapLogic and asked to take their platform for a spin. SnapLogic is part of this new class of “integration platform as a service” providers that take a modern approach to application/data integration. In this first blog post (of a few […]

In a few weeks, I’ll kick off a run of conference presentations that I’m really looking forward to. First, I’ll be in London for the BizTalk Summit 2014 event put on by the BizTalk360 team. In my talk “When To Use What: A Look at Choosing Integration Technology”, I take a fresh look at the […]

This one – called Architecting Highly Available Systems on AWS – is now online and ready for your viewing pleasure.

Last week I had the pleasure of visiting New Orleans to present at TechEd North America. My session, Patterns of Cloud Integration, was recorded and is now available on Channel9 for everyone to view. I made the bold (or “reckless”, depending on your perspective) decision to show off as many technology demos as possible so […]

In a few weeks, I’ll be heading to New Orleans to speak at Microsoft TechEd for the first time. My topic – Patterns of Cloud Integration – is an extension of things I’ve talked about this year in Amsterdam, Gothenburg, and in my latest Pluralsight course. However, I’ll also be covering some entirely new ground […]

Creating a “Flat File” Shared Database with Amazon S3 and Node.js

May 6, 2013

In my latest Pluralsight video training course – Patterns of Cloud Integration – I addressed application and data integration scenarios that involve cloud endpoints. In the “shared database” module of the course, I discussed integration options where parties relied on a common (cloud) data repository. One of my solutions was inspired by Amazon CTO Werner […]

This course, Patterns of Cloud Integration,  takes you through how application and data integration differ when adding cloud endpoints. The course highlights the 4 integration styles/patterns introduced in the excellent Enterprise Integration Patterns book and discusses […]

Using ASP.NET SignalR to Publish Incremental Responses from Scatter-Gather BizTalk Workflow

While in Europe last week presenting at the Integration Days event, I showed off some demonstration of cool new technologies working with existing integration tools. One of those demos combined SignalR and BizTalk Server in a novel way. One of the use cases for an integration bus like BizTalk Server is to aggregate data from […]

Book Review: The New Kingmakers

January 14, 2013

2

I just finished reading the fascinating new mini-eBook “The New Kingmakers” from Redmonk co-founder Stephen O’Grady. This book represents a more in-depth analysis of a premise put forth by O’Grady a couple years back: developers are the single most important constituency in technology. O’Grady doubles-down on that claim here, and while I think he proves […]
