Matthew Revell talks about creating and running developer conferences.

Want to be on the next episode? You can! All you need is the willingness to talk about something technical.

Theme music is "Crosscutting Concerns" by The Dirty Truckers, check out their music on Amazon or iTunes.

I have been accepted as a speaker for CodeMash 2016. I will be presenting "Convention Over Configuration: Queueing is Easy". This session will demonstrate how EasyNetQ (on top of RabbitMQ) makes it easier to deal with queues by using convention over configuration.

I have started preparing material for this session. One of the ways I'm doing this is by creating a series of short videos. The videos will be more in-depth than the ultimate session, but it gives me a chance to practice, prepare, and organize my thoughts. I usually prepare session material this way; I just don't record it on video.

To date, I've created and release two videos. Check out the playlist on YouTube for RabbitMQ/EasyNetQ.

This is the first "Weekly Concerns" (thank you Jason Karns for the name) post, of what is going to be a weekly series of blog posts that's basically just a Friday link dump. Not that each of these links don't deserve more attention and research, but, hey, I get lazy sometimes, alright!

  • SharpCrafters webinar - "How to Stay DRY with AOP and PostSharp", featuring PostSharp developer Igal Tabachnik
  • White paper from Cornell about using AOP in seperating concerns (available in PDF and other formats)
  • The NDC conference in 2011 had an "AOP & IoC" track. I'm guessing many of you didn't make it to Norway for this conference (I didn't), but the NDC is kind enough to make video of the sessions available. Day 3, Track 5 features Gael Fraiteur (creator of PostSharp), Donald Belcham (fellow PostSharp MVP), and some other sessions about the more general topic of rewriting IL.
  • SheepAspect for .NET - another AOP framework that uses IL rewriting. I've not heard of this one much, but it is open source and probably deserves a closer look (perhaps in a future blog post).
  • AOP for Perl (yes, Perl!) with Aspect from Adam Kennedy (who has his own Wikipedia page), with a very comprehensive and well written README that's a pretty good primer on AOP in general.

AOSD and FOAL 2012

There's a whole conference dedicated to aspect-oriented programming. The AOSD (Aspect-Oriented Software Development) conference is put on by the AOSA (Aspect-Oriented Software Association).

The 2012 conference is on March 25-30, in Potsdam, Germany. A five day conference on AOP? Wowza. But wait, there's more. You can also attend FOAL (Foundations of Aspect-Oriented Languages) while you're there in Potsdam on March 26, where Eric Bodden will be keynoting.

All things considered, I'd really like to go, but I definitely can't.  Maybe next year decade, after I save up enough vacation days and learn some German?
