On April 23rd, the (recently-formed!) Boston Scalability User Group will serve as host for a special visit by Microsoft's Greg Leake to speak about the .NET StockTrader application and scalability in distributed SOA systems.

StockTraderThe meeting will be on Wednesday, April 23rd, from 6-8 PM at the Microsoft offices at 201 Jones Road in Waltham, MA. 

Please register for the event as pizza (and some raffled software) will be provided.

If you have an interest in performance, interoperability, and distributed systems scalability, especially with ASP.NET and WCF, then this is a session I strongly recommend you consider attending.

Here's a description of the event:

NET StockTrader/SOA Session

 

Subject: The .NET StockTrader is an end-to-end sample application for .NET Enterprise Application Server technologies. It is a distributed service-oriented application based on the .NET Framework, specifically using Windows Communication Foundation and ASP.NET. This session will illustrate how many of the .NET enterprise development technologies are made for building highly scalable, rich "enterprise-connected" applications. Greg will also be doing a full demo of this application and how he has designed this application to be a benchmark kit.

 

Speaker: Greg Leake works in the Connected Systems Division at Microsoft. Greg has been at the company for about 15 years and have held several positions including a few in the Developer Division. He currently spends most of his time developing new enterprise software and samples that focus on interoperability, scalability and performance.
