Spoke at CT .NET User Group about Cloud Architecture Patterns for Building Cloud-Native Applications in Windows Azure

On October 9, 2012, I was pleased to speak to the Connecticut .NET Developers Group. It was really fun since the crowd was extremely engaged.🙂 There was a lot of good back-and-forth discussion.

This was the talk abstract:

Just because we get an application to run on cloud infrastructure does not ensure that it runs well. To truly take advantage of the cloud we need to build cloud-native applications. The architecture of a cloud-native application is different than the architecture of a traditional application. A cloud-native application is architected for cost-efficiency, availability, and scalability. We will examine several key architecture patterns that help unlock cloud-native benefits, spanning computation, database, and resource-focused patterns. By the end of the talk you should appreciate how cloud architecture is more demanding than you might be accustomed to in some areas, but with high payoff such as handling failure without downtime, scaling arbitrarily, and allowing aggressive cost-optimization.

All the concepts and patterns I spoke about are also discussed in my recently released book, Cloud Architecture Patterns:

If you do read the book, I’d very much appreciate a short review on Amazon.

Also, please stay in touch via twitter (@codingoutloud) or email (my twitter handle at gmail). Got Azure or Cloud questions? Feedback on the book? Please reach out.
