Topic: nServiceBus is mature and powerful open source framework that
enables to design robust, scalable, message-based, service-oriented
architectures. Latest improvements in the configuration API enables
developers to quickly get started and build a working simple system
that uses messaging infrastructure. The goal of this session is to
give a jump start with the framework, introduce basic concepts such as
message handlers, Sagas, Pub/Sub, Generic Host and also create a
working demo application that uses publish/subscribe messaging. The
content of the session is addressed to developers that are interested
in learning how to get started using nServiceBus in order to design
and build distributed systems.

Virtual ALT.NET (VAN) is the online gathering place of the ALT.NET
community. Through conversations, presentations, pair programming and
dojos, we strive to improve, explore, and challenge the way we create
software. Using net conferencing technology such as Skype and
LiveMeeting, we hold regular meetings, open to anyone, usually taking
the form of a presentation or an Open Space Technology-style
