Thoughts on software development and other stuff

What’s happening in the world of Coherence?

without comments

It has been a while since I’ve posted, so I figured it would be a good time to give an update on what is happening in Coherence land.

New Coherence Bloggers

We have two new bloggers sharing their experiences with Coherence!

The first is by Oracle JDBC expert Pas Apicella who recently took on Coherence. Upon his introduction to Coherence he immediately proceeded to create a CacheStore example using PL/SQL, followed by an example of using the Oracle JDBC Data Change Notification mechanism to push updates from the database to a cache.

Additionally we have Coherence architect Andy Nguyen debuting with a detailed description of a sophisticated distributed bulk loading technique he’s employed on several customer projects.

Coherence Book in March

After many months of blood, sweat, and blisters from too much typing, Aleksandar Seovic has completed the highly anticipated Coherence book published by Packt. Having worked closely with Aleks on reviews and contributions, I believe this book will be a terrific resource for developers and architects that need to write scalable applications. Both experienced users of Coherence and new users will find relevant and useful content. Aleks was recently interviewed by Cameron Purdy about the book which can be downloaded as an MP3.

User Group Meetings

The UK SIG in London is the last Coherence user group meeting for the winter, it is coming up on February 26th. The spring events are currently being planned; stay tuned for details!

Also coming up on February 24th is the first Boston SUG meeting of the year. Although the topic won’t be Coherence this time, it will be of interest for developers and architects interested in scalable systems. We’ll be meeting up for drinks and snacks at Bertucci’s afterwards. And I’ll be there if anyone wants to chat about Coherence or any other topic!
