Main Presentation:

CQRS, Lite and Otherwise

George Mauer (Surge Consulting Group)

A popular buzzword, CQRS is often misunderstood and more often misused. Less of an architecture than a set of related techniques and an architectural flavor, it is an important and powerful technique to have in your arsenal. This talk discusses traditional CQRS, breaks it down to its essence, and discusses a lightweight alternative by which an application can be created without much of the overhead while maintaining a straightforward transition path to a fully CQRS style.

George Mauer is a software developer, speaker, teacher, writer, and comedian with an interest in the various techniques that can make software simple, extensible, and communicative. He is currently a Director of Development with Surge Consulting Group, a part of Catalyte. He teaches and helps build curriculum with Operation Spark. He mentors with Operation Code (unrelated). He also speaks regularly on Javascript, C#, MVC, testing, interviewing, etc at conferences, usergroups, and to his cat (singular – the other one won’t listen to him).
