Do also remember the complete archives are always up and they have PDF Transcripts, a little known feature that show up a few weeks after each show.

Telerik is our sponsor for this show.

Check out their UI Suite of controls for ASP.NET. It's very hardcore stuff. One of the things I appreciate about Telerik is their commitment to completeness. For example, they have a page about their Right-to-Left support while some vendors have zero support, or don't bother testing. They also are committed to XHTML compliance and publish their roadmap. It's nice when your controls vendor is very transparent.

As I've said before this show comes to you with the audio expertise and stewardship of Carl Franklin. The name comes from Travis Illig, but the goal of the show is simple. Avoid wasting the listener's time. (and make the commute less boring)

Enjoy. Who knows what'll happen in the next show?

Irrelevant observation:

Today your blog's default page has five photographs of people on it, including the frame from the Chris Sells vid.

All five people have the same beard.

Scott asked: "Did Microsoft drop the ball?"

Microsoft does have a framework called the 'CCR & DSS Toolkit' that can be used as a service bus and/or as a broker and seems to have many of the same attributes as NServiceBus.

It has queued contract based messaging, publisher-subscriber model, excellent fault tolerance, extremely high performance, is ideal for scale-up and scale-out scenarios. A real hidden gem, but it does have an awful double acronym name. More info here

Goatees for developers, black turtle-necks for designers. It's so you can spot them better in the wild.

Hey Scott,

Great show, i'm going to get all our Devs to listen to it. We have implemented our first nServiceBus in production with great results. I would love to hear Udi get more into the details of what makes nServiceBus tick.

We are trying to have small teams working on applications that have a narrow focus to keep them simple and allow us release often and respond quickly to unanticipated business needs.

Keep up the good work.

MS SQL Server's Service Broker is also a light, transactional, distributed, asynchronous way of distributing messages accross applications (Despite the "broker" in the name). I would have loved to hear Udi on this one.
