Bart de Smet in Dublin – 4th July 6.30pm

We are very excited to announce that Bart De Smet will be visiting us once again to give us an updated talk on RX. Bart is a fantastic speaker, and it’s a real pleasure to be able to have him back again.

We’d like to send a thanks to Microsoft for their help in getting Bart to Dublin, and to BEAM Financial Solutions for sponsoring the venue.

The venue will be our usual spot – the Central Hotel on Exchequer St – on Wednesday, July 4th at 6.30pm. So book it in your calendars now, and please register in EventBrite. As usual, it’s free, but we really need to know the numbers for this one.

Anyone who missed him last time, don’t miss this one! And for those who were there, there’s plenty of updates (see below)

We really hope we can get a great turnout for this, so please help spread the word. And don’t forget to register

See you there!

Event details:

Abstract: Over the last years, we’ve seen a tremendous shift in the velocity of data. Ever increasing volumes of data are coming into our applications in an event-driven, asynchronous manner. Just imagine the bulk load of sensors in mobile devices, the social media fire hose, real-time trading and auction services, etc. This shift towards a push-based model for data acquisition prompts us to rethink the way we program our applications and services. No longer is the application in the driver seat of retrieving data. Instead, our code needs to react to a stream of incoming data. In this session, you’ll learn how Reactive Extensions (Rx) provides a nice programming abstraction for reactive event-driven programming, based on the notion of observable sequences and LINQ-style query support. Besides focusing on the essential abstractions, you’ll see a bunch of samples on how to use Rx to solve real-world problems, ranging from mobile application development on Windows Phone 7 and Windows 8, over sensor programming using state-of-the-art technologies such as Kinect, to large-scale cloud data processing and data center monitoring. We’ll also focus on the better together story of using the upcoming Rx v2.0 release with the new C# 5.0 and Visual Basic 11 language features for asynchronous programming. Come and learn how to tame your event processing problems using Rx!

Bio: Bart J.F. De Smet is a senior software development engineer in the Cloud Programmability Team at Microsoft. For the last 2,5 years he’s been focused on democratizing data processing problems of all scales, using LINQ as the universal glue. In this role, he’s in charge of the design and development of Reactive Extensions, as well as various yet unannounced projects. Prior to joining the team, Bart worked on a the WPF team for a couple of years, after having joined Microsoft fresh out of university in 2007. During his Master of Computer Science and Civil Engineering studies in Ghent University (Belgium), Bart was active in the Microsoft community and became an MVP for C# in 2003. He’s also the author of the SAMS C# 4.0 Unleashed book, has been blogging for many years, and is a popular speaker at various conferences including TechEd, PDC, MIX, //build/, and several local Microsoft events.

    But let’s face it even if we all tried as hard as these Extreme Couponers
    on TV we probably won’t every pull off a haul like they
    do because the majority of the stores for the majority of the nation do not double and triple
    coupons. All my days of penny-pinching have certainly proven
    to me that it truly does not take money to make us happy. The cost per load for their second package (80 loads) is $0.

    Can I just say what a relief to find somebody who really understands what they’re
    discussing on the internet. You actually understand how to bring an issue to light and
    make it important. More people really need to read this and understand
    this side of the story. It’s surprising you aren’t
    more popular because you most certainly possess the gift.

    Heya! I know this is sort of off-topic but I had to ask.

    Does operating a well-established website like yours require a
    large amount of work? I’m brand new to blogging but I do write
    in my diary on a daily basis. I’d like to start a blog so I can easily
    share my own experience and thoughts online. Please
    let me know if you have any recommendations or
    tips for new aspiring bloggers. Thankyou!
