Speaking at Tampa's SQLSaturday On AppFabric (Velocity)

Next month I will be headed out to Tampa's SQLSaturday to give a presentation titled, "Getting Started with AppFabric Caching (Velocity)". AppFabric offers some new features with the support of SQL Server, and as AppFabric starts gaining attention it is equally important that developers and dba developers are aware of how they could be impacted. Below is the description for my presentation.

"Let's face it, reading and writing data with SQL Server can be expensive and has scaling this type of architecture has its implications that need to be considered upfront. This is one of the reasons Microsoft has included caching within its future AppFabric Framework. Caching is not a new methodology because we can use it currently in applications built on top of ASP.Net out of the box, however there are still scaling issues that AppFabric Caching (ACF), formerly Velocity addresses. As database developers, it is important to identify with new trends that may affect database integration and this presentation does just that. First we will learn the basics of AFC, how to install, how to scale, and how data driven solutions can benefit from it."

If you are interested in learning more about AppFabric Caching this session will be a great starting point demonstrating its architecture, down to best practices for caching different types of data... Or if you are not interested, you still can hang out with Andy Warren, however my session has him beat in the 'sexy' category!
