Archives for February 2011
For several days, I’ve been digging through my archives – published and unpublished writings, note cards, diagrams and doodles – to surface anything within 5 degrees of change-friendly. It’s been an interesting exercise. According to photos of my whiteboard, I’ve been circling change-friendly since March 2009. Slow and steady wins the race?
Anyway, today I went through my blog posts. Not including my formal, foundational pieces — EDA overview, cloud-o-gram, etc — I found aspects of change-friendly in 20 posts. I considered saving these links in a file somewhere, but then I’d be digging for that. Believe me.
So, for my own sanity, I’m posting my findings here at the source.

Sticky Quotes? (Wealth of Information & Intelligently Stumble)
Without question, the Event-Driven Architecture Overview is the most popular piece I have written. Because it is architectural, rather than technical, it remains relevant today, and will continue to help practitioners for the next several years.
To celebrate both the 5th Anniversary of the Event-Driven Architecture Overview report publication, and the rising interest in event-driven architecture and event processing, I’m re-issuing the core of the original paper in a traditional, portable, and easy-to-print format.
Staying true to the original, the re-issued report explains key event concepts, walks through event processing flows, and identifies the major implementation components of an event-driven architecture. I did update the event processing provider footnote to reflect current players.
The re-issue includes a new introduction as well as the requisite “About Brenda and Event Processing” page.
