Distributed Systems 101
Colin Pear, Clear Measure
In the world of web applications we sometimes run into terms like distributed computing, and distributed systems. But what does it mean to build software in a distributed fashion? What are the things you need to be aware of when writing code that communicates across processes, across networks, or even across the world? And are there any patterns that can help us to build a distributed system? This presentation will seek to answer those questions and more by laying down some basic ground work about Distributed Systems.
Getting into Valero's Campus
Use the main gate. It has a guard until around 6pm. If there isn't someone there, use the call button and let the operator know you're there for the SharePoint and .Net User Group meeting.
Once you're through the gate, turn right. Park in the garage at the far end of the campus. Enter Building D through the garage entrance on the ground floor.
