Using StreamInsight 2.1 and IEnumerable to Process SQL Server Data

August 3, 2012


The StreamInsight team recently released a major new version of their Complex Event Processing engine and I’ve finally gotten a chance to start playing around with it.

Using SignalR To Push StreamInsight Events to Client Browsers

February 29, 2012
