More June User Group Meetings

As noted by all two of my readers, I missed some of the user groups from the area in my previous post announcing all of the June meetings.  While I’ve visited quite a few of the user groups in the past eight months since I started as a DE, I haven’t been able to get to all of them yet.  Don’t worry, hopefully I’ll visit all of them sooner or later. 


Anyway…  here is some more user group meeting info for June:


New York Enterprise Windows User Group of NYPC


The NYEWIN already met on June 1st where Vikki Jensen & Rodney Jean-Pierre of K2 Workflow spoke about Business Process Integration using SharePoint, Infopath, Biztalk and K2’s workflow product.  This group usually meets on the first Thursday of the month.

Reliable Message Handling – David Douglass, ADP

Messaging systems such as MSMQ provide reliable messaging: a message is guaranteed to be delivered.  From an architectural perspective this needs to be taken to the next level: the application processing messages needs to be as reliable as the message delivery system.  This presentation examines the issues that an application has to deal with, and the related solutions, for:

§         infrastructure instability

§         poison messages

§         scalability

§         distributed transactions

§         error logging

§         extensibility

§         application stability

§         interoperability

§         efficiency

Fresh Look at Data Access:  Modern Architectures, Emerging Standards, and Things That Are No Longer True

What Software Architects Need to Know Now To Build Applications for Performance & Flexibility - Paul Preiss

New development platforms and emerging architectural standards are changing the way we view data, challenging long held views on data access technologies, and demanding the use of new XML and service-oriented capabilities.   Things are not as they used to be, and the landscape continues to evolve.  Making informed choices facilitates rapid development and deployment and enhances application capability, scalability, and performance. 

In this half day seminar, software architects will learn the state of the art in data access, mainframe integration, and XML query technology.   The seminar will provide the insight to navigate the complexities of data access technologies and the practical know-how to enhance application performance, flexibility and capability right away.

The information provided in this seminar will be applicable to architects regardless of whether they are designing for Java, .NET, or other development platforms.  It will address SOA-enabled applications as well as stand-alone, tightly coupled applications.

  2. Ravi,

    Thanks for pointing out the link to the calendar!  It looks great.  Is there anyway we can get descriptions of all of the meetings plugged into that?  That would be really cool!
