22hrs In New York: StreamInsight, Dryad and JFK Reading
It’s nice to be back in NYC, it’s been a year or so, and luckily today was pleasant from a weather perspective. Sometimes you need to do these short duration trip to help out clients – luckily my body clock doesn’t suffer from jetlag 🙂
Whilst in-flight I managed to do some more work on the StreamInsight presentation and demos for the up and coming Leveraging Technology to Drive Customer Connections. I do think the AppFabric Caching Real-Time Market Risk demo is cool, its just unfortunate that I suspect the slides and time will not do it justice.
Dryad. I’ve had the samples on my machine for about 4 weeks now, and have yet to spend enough time looking at them. Generally from the HPC work that has already been done from a Market Risk cashflow perspective, Microsoft need to spend more time in the area of scheduler performance connectivity coupled with diagnostics of understanding why a HPC SOA service is failing. On the diagnostics side of things, it’s just painful. We need a better User Experience (UX) from the developer toolset.
MSDN Magazine May 2010 didn’t have a lot from my perspective:
- LINQ Projection Queries and Alternatives in WCF Services
- Production Diagnostics Improvements in CLR 4
And I missed this one from April 2010:
- Entity Framework 4.0 and WCF Data Services 4.0 in Visual Studio 2010
I need to find time to getting back to Azure. As I said in a previous posting, given the start of the various home projects, the next logic step is to move them into Azure.
