I had a great time at Jax Code Impact over the weekend. Many thanks to Bayer and Brandy for putting together a free, enjoyable, and educational Saturday conference. As a first year conference, it was impressive to see more than 300 people registered for six tracks of Microsoft-focused presentations. Kevin Wolf was a big hit with his quadcopters, 3-D printer, and oculus rift. I personally enjoyed two separate talks on Redis by Henry Lee and Steve Danielson.
I talked about the Windows Azure Service Bus offerings, and hit on topics such as Relays, Queues, Topics, WCF bindings, Pub/Sub, AMQP, and of course some Cloud Design Patterns.
Here are the slides and code demos from my talk:
