A Queue By Any Other Name Would Still Work The Same … Or Would It?


When Windows Azure was originally released a built in queuing feature was included. The Windows Azure Storage Queues were the suggested way for compute instances and applications to talk to each other. Flash forward to just a few months ago and another queue feature appears on the Windows Azure scene with Service Bus Queues and Topics. So, why are there two queue technologies? How do they differ? When should you choose one over the other? These are the questions we’ll look to answer in this session.


Michael Wood is a Senior Application Developer for Resurgent Capital Services. He describes himself as a problem solving, outdoorsy, user group leading, dog-loving, blog writing, solution creating, event planning, married, technology speaking, father of one kind of guy. When he’s not living up to that title he’s an avid reader, (horrible) violinist and gamer. Michael is one of the Founding Directors of the Cincinnati .NET User Group as well as the founder of the Cincinnati Software Architecture Special Interest Group. He is also the instigator of the informal code pairing Bitslinger events in Cincinnati and a Microsoft MVP in Windows Azure. You can catch up with Mike on his blog at mvwood.com/blog and on twitter under the handle @mikewo.
