I had the opportunity to give a talk last Wednesday night at VanDev Meetup (Vancouver’s Software Developer Network). Here is a quick summary of it.
In this talk, I have presented a few criteria to help developers and architects decide between using ready-made EAI tools versus custom built solutions. I have discussed the identification of contexts, patterns, topologies and decision factors that can help favor one approach or the other.
The last days of June will be busy as I will be talking at two events happening in Vancouver, BC, on the 29th and the 30th.
In the first presentation, I will demonstrate MuleSoft’s Eclipse Tool Suite at the local Eclipse DemoCamp, an event that always has an incredible line-up, thanks to the local presence of the Tasktop and SpringSource teams. Also, the University of British Columbia oftentimes presents there Eclipse plugins that explore the cutting edge of software development.
