For the Monday, September 11th meetup, we will once again be joined by Neudesic’s Chad Thomas for a discussion on Service Fabric. Chad joined us in May for an introductory look at Service Fabric. This month he’ll share his guidance and experiences on building real-world solutions with Service Fabric. Please join us on Monday, September 11th for what is sure to be a great discussion. Bring your questions!
Please RSVP today (helps to ensure we have the right amount of food & drinks).
The Central Ohio Azure group would like to thank Neudesic for once again sponsoring our meetup!
Abstract: Service Fabric is the foundational technology powering core Azure infrastructure as well as other Microsoft services such as Skype for Business, Dynamics 365, Cortana, Azure SQL Database, and many more. Service Fabric solves the hard distributed systems problems such as reliability, scalability, management, and latency, so you can focus on building applications.
At the May meetup, we discussed Service Fabric’s architecture, use cases, and many of the problems it alleviates. This month, we’ll dive a bit deeper and build a representative Service Fabric application that highlights Service Fabric’s programming models. You will see how to use Reliable Services and Reliable Actors to build a solution. You will learn the pros and cons of each, and guidance on selecting the model for your solution. We’ll wrap up by discussing exciting new features in Service Fabric, including using Service Fabric for hosting Docker containers on Linux or Windows and running them alongside other workloads.
Presenter: Chad Thomas – Director of Technology, Neudesic
Chad Thomas is Director of Technology for Neudesic’s Digital Platform service line, spanning mobile, web, architecture, and cloud. He and his team help companies transition from Agile to Continuous, from monoliths to microservices, and ultimately from incremental improvement to innovation at scale. Azure is a big part of Neudesic’s strategy and they are very excited about the Service Fabric.
Even when Chad is not working, technology is deeply engrained in his daily life. Currently, that manifests itself in the form of modernist cuisine, sous vide immersion cookers, and digital electric smokers.
