Event Handling with .NET, RaventDB, and IronMQ

The other day we blogged about a map-reduce contribution from the Iron.io community. Here’s another great contribution from an Iron.io user which highlights handling commit transactions within a database all the while coordinating downstream events using a message queue. 

Jef Claes is a developer in Belgium that has written a few things about IronMQ in the past (here and here). His latest blog post addresses maintaining eventual consistent domain events using RavenDB and IronMQ. It’s a short post but a good rundown on how to maintain consistency when transactions involved multiple distributed systems. Continue reading “Event Handling with .NET, RaventDB, and IronMQ”

Here’s a quick Hello Worker example so you can see how easy it is to get started.
