Welcome back to another episode of the distributed podcast. This is a recording of a skype call about software design that Jonathan Oliver had with Rinat Abdullin.
Download this accidental 14 episode.
Note by Rinat: Since I’m the worst person to talk about software design, I might be saying really stupid things in there. Please don’t hesitate to correct that in the comments.
We haven’t been podcasting in a while and Jonathan Oliver took the initiative of getting back on the track with this lucky episode. We’ll catch up on some interesting things that Rinat and Lokad were doing recently with architecture, technology and community. Some of the things we talk about: Windows Azure, Amazon High I/O SSD instance, Automatic rebuilding of CQRS views and why github is just a replica of SourceSafe.

Side note: This episode has been a long time coming. We hope to be a little better about a recording schedule so we can keep the goodness coming.
This episode was a fun one to record–everybody was busy traveling, learning and doing projects. So we just managed to sit down for a Skype call from different time zones and talk about really random stuff around the topic, from problems that we have, analogies that we use and tech that gets abused in the process.

This episode has been a long time coming. We had significant difficulty editing this podcast because some of the audio tracks didn’t turn out right. As a result, there is a level of background noise that we couldn’t eliminate. Nonetheless, the content is still very good.
In this episode, Udi responds to our previous episode wherein we discussed his blog post When to avoid CQRS. In response to that episode, Udi raises a number of great points during our discussion, and in typical Udi style gives a firehouse of information. My brain still hurts. But it’s a good hurt.

A few months ago Udi Dahan posted on his blog about when to avoid CQRS. It was a very interesting post that caused a lot of uproar and drew out some very strong feelings from the various adherents to the CQRS pattern.
In our typical style, we have decided to stir the pot further now that things have settled down some. In this episode we go through Udi’s post and talk about the various points he raises as part of his post.

By the way, Oren Eini just got married recently! We use this opportunity to congratulate him with this incredible event. Wishing him all the happiness, continued involvement in .NET development community and balancing these two together.
There was a subtle glitch with the last 3 podcasts (4-6). WordPress didn’t grab proper content type of the enclosed mp3 files. This made some podcast-enabled RSS readers ignore these recordings.
I apologize for the problem. It should be fixed for all future podcasts (and may be even for the previous ones).
In this episode we interview our first guest, Jimmy Bogard. In this interview, we explore a number of different topics including NServiceBus, testing distributed systems, distributed transactions, and many others topics on computing in general.
