SOA Done Right (with examples in ASP.NET and NServiceBus)

Arkitektur & Design

This workshop is part of NDC Oslo 2018.

Go beyond the hype and build a solid foundation of theory and practice with this workshop on SOA development.

Join Adam Ralph and Jimmy Bogard for a two-day deep dive covering architectural topics like:

  • UI decomposition
  • Data ownership across the enterprise
  • How to choose NOSQL databases for your services

You'll also learn the nitty-gritty details of building production-ready systems including:

  • Fault tolerance – HTTP and queues
  • Reliable integration with 3rd party systems
  • Scalability, high availability & monitoring

Finally, get some hands-on experience in SOA development by building:

  • Scalable command-processing endpoints
  • Publish/subscribe event-processing interactions
  • Long-running multi-stage business processes and policies


We'll understand service oriented architecture concepts, and DDD concepts such as bounded contexts and data ownership.

We'll apply those concepts to build a simple, yet fully functional, order management system sample with a microservices architecture, using patterns such as command processing, pub/sub and long-running sagas.

Skill Level

Senior developers, tech leads, and architects will benefit most from this workshop.
