Update: Jimmy has posted links to slide deck on his blog.
Update: For those who can’t make it in person, a company called OneStream has kindly offered to do a live stream of the event. We’re at the mercy of the hotel wi-fi, but hopefully you’ll be able to catch it here: http://video.onestream.tv/production/view/124
Been a little while since we had our last meetup, but it’ll be worth the wait! This month we are fortunate to have Jimmy Bogard in town and he’s kindly offered to give us a talk on Real World Polyglot Persistence:
It always sounds easy – “use the best tool for the job”. With very isolated systems, it’s easy to decide RDBMS for one application, Redis for another and Cassandra for somethings else. When it comes time to building systems with multiple persistent stores, we’re met with challenges in integration, existing applications, and push back from IT administrators. In this session, we’ll look at the multitude of challenges of achieving polyglot persistence nirvana, and strategies for addressing associated risks.
Jimmy is a member of the ASPInsiders group, the C# Insiders group, and received the “Microsoft Most Valuable Professional” (MVP) award for ASP.NET in 2009-2012. Jimmy is also the creator and lead developer of the popular OSS library AutoMapper.
The talk will be on Thursday, November 29th, in the usual location: the Central Hotel on Exchequer St. at 6.30. Sorry about the short-ish notice this time.
The event is free as always thanks to our sponsors Beam, but don’t forget to register if you plan on attending so we have an idea of the numbers.
This is one not to be missed. Hope to see you all there.
