High-performance Stream-Oriented Processing Systems for IoT with Riccardo Terrell


Join the Enterprise Developers Guild and me on Tuesday, February 26th, at 6:00 PM in the Redwood Conference Room of the Microsoft Charlotte Office. Real-time event-based systems process millions of messages per second by defining and combining small flows to create processing graphs. This talk covers the concepts behind streamed-oriented processing systems using high-performance messaging queue systems like Kafka and Akka Streams.

Real-time applications are dominating the industry! Data is the main ingredient in Internet-based, social media and Internet of things (IoT) systems, which generate continuous streams of events used for real-time analytics. This poses a tremendous challenge due to the massive volume of data collected and processed. These event-based real-time analysis systems can efficiently handle millions of messages per second through new generation solutions by simply defining small flows and then combining them to create processing graphs. In this talk, will cover the concepts behind high-performance streamed-oriented big data processing systems. We will explore messaging queue systems like Kafka and Akka Streams which let developers define their process workflows at a higher level to describe a graph system enabling high throughput. You will learn how to integrate high-performance stream message queues and how to define process workflows in C# and F#.

The meeting presenter is Riccardo Terrell.

Multi-paradigm for the win-Secrets to becoming a better programmer with Riccardo Terrell


Join the Enterprise Developers Guild and me on Tuesday, June 26th, at 6:00 PM in the Redwood Conference Room (formerly named MPR or the Multi-Purpose Room) of the Microsoft Charlotte Office. Are you a polyglot programmer who uses multiple languages on a single project? Are you ready to take this practice to the next level to increase productivity, code correctness, maintenance and, in some cases, performance? If yes, then this session is for you!

In this session, we will discuss and demonstrate how multi-paradigm programming is even more potent than polyglot programming. Most mainstream programming languages support multiple programming paradigms (object-oriented, generic, functional, etc.), yet many developers confine themselves to a single paradigm. Whether using single or multiple languages, I will show you how to maximize potential by adopting multi-paradigm programming.

The key to better programs is knowing which languages to choose for the designed effect and how to combine them correctly for the desired outcome. For example, although object-oriented programming paradigms are widely used, the applications and design practices for functional programming may provide improved solutions to your architecture. After this session, you will walk away with the ability to select which paradigm is a better fit given a domain or sub-domain, and most importantly, you will learn the skills to make different paradigms coexist to create highly modular, extensible, and loosely coupled components. The goal of this session is not to claim that one paradigm is better than the other, but rather to introduce another way of thinking about programming to become a better developer.
