Upcoming .NET events at Skills Matter: MassTransit, Future of Web development and Mono

The plan for the opensource .NET events at Skills Matter for the following three months is:

All these events are free, but up-front registration is required for capacity planning. Click on individual events to register.

In addition to that, I’ll be running the 3 day Progressive .NET course again on November 11th-13th. The course helps students learn the most important emerging practices in the .NET community such as dependency injection, aspect oriented programming, MVC, object-relational mapping, unit and acceptance TDD and so on, with practical exercises using leading opensource .NET tools such as the Castle stack, NHibernate, MBUnit… For more information and to register, see http://skillsmatter.com/course/open-source-dot-net/opensource-dot-net-tools-crash-course.

Free presentation on Space Based Programming, September 2nd, London

I’m doing a free evening talk on space based programming on September 2nd at Skills Matter.

Space-based architectures are an alternative to the traditional n-tier model for enterprise applications. Instead of a vertical tier partitioning, space based applications are partitioned horizontally into self-sufficient units. This leads to almost linear scalability of stateful, high-performance applications. In this presentation, I’ll talk about space based programming in general and demonstrate how to do that on the .NET platform.

The event is free but up-front registration is required. See http://skillsmatter.com/podcast/open-source-dot-net/space-based-programming/ for more information and to register.
