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?
