Udi Dahan shows you how to use the fabulous NServiceBus to provide reliable messaging using both a request/response and publish/subscribe architecture. He shows how much easier it is to use NServiceBus than to use WCF for reliable messaging.
Carl caught up with Steve Smith at Tech Ed 2011 to continue Steve's series on design patterns in .NET. Steve incorporates a few of the patterns described in Part 1 in a real world web application and then builds a test class on the fly to test it.
Carl sat down with Seth Juarez at Tech Ed and got his mind blown with some of Seth's Machine Learning demos. Even if you're not a developer you will find this show fascintating due to Seth's right-brain approach to math.
