SEDA

At the recent XML Summer School I mentioned SEDA - Staged Event Driven Architecture - as an interesting approach to temporal decoupling a form of decoupling which I believe is vital to any non-null definition of SOA.

I think of it now because it is relevant to Restaurants, roller coasters and randomly failing web applications.

Who you are

A while back I asked "Who are you?.

I recieved somewhere in the region on 40-50 replies via various media. Here is a distillation.

  • You are interested in Python/XML/Web Services/SOA and a goodly number of you are interested in broader areas of dynamic typing/information integration/distributed systems.
  • Many of you like the ITWorld articles citing humour, interesting/odd-point-of-view and writing style as reasons.
  • You mostly work in IT in the commercial sector
  • You live in North America/Europe


Thanks to all who replied.
