Jacob and I just got back from Austin, TX where we were fortunate enough to attend the week long, lengthily titled Advanced Distributed Systems Design using SOA & DDD with Udi Dahan, The Software Simplist.
Awesome. Just awesome. We’d been meaning to delve into messaging at Eleutian after multiple discussions with and blog posts from Greg Young and Udi Dahan in the past. We weren’t entirely sure where to start, how to start, what tools to use, how to use them, etc. Being able to sit in a room with Udi for an entire week while he described exactly how, why and what he does to tackle a massive enterprise system was invaluable to say the least.
We now have a much better direction and, more importantly, have the confidence we need to start introducing these powerful concepts into production at Eleutian.
If Udi’s ever in your area giving this course and you’ve got a company that cares about their scalability, reliability and maintainability enough to see the value in such an offering, I’d strongly advise giving it a go.
