Command-Query Responsibility Segregation (CQRS) is slowly but steadily gaining ground as an architecture that helps developers to develop scalable, extensible and maintainable applications. Events play a major role in this architecture, and the way you design these events greatly influence the extensibility of your application.
In this post, I describe some CQRS event basics [...]
The year 2009 is almost over. In good tradition, this post is a recap of what happened to gridshore in this year. I will discuss new technologies as discussed on gridshore.nl. I’ll also talk about important things happened this year on a professional level to myself.
First and foremost an apology to all regular readers: I fully realize GridShore is not intended to deal with Microsoft technology (or whatever detritus is collected under that name). However, this one is such a beauty of having to go the long way to get things done that I don’t want to hold back.
The last few days I’ve been reading BAD Astronomy, a book by astronomer Philip Plait that describes common misconceptions, misuses and scientific abuses of astronomy.

Like Jettro in his perspective on content management, I would like to draw your attention to another blog which was published on the Daily WTF and mentioned on The ServerSide. It’s hilarious and a good lesson as well: Java is Slow!
This year, 2009, we celebrate the 50th anniversary of a landmark moment for (Dutch) computing science: it is 50 years ago this year that Edsger Wybe Dijkstra, The Netherlands’ most famous computing scientist, published his Shortest Path Algorithm in Numerische Mathematik, the German journal of numerical mathematics.
The shortest path algorithm is a solution to [...]
I have written some posts about using flex and the project Spring BlazeDS Integration. If you haven’t read that post I suggest you start there first : Flex remoting without configuring the client. That said, what is this post about? As the title already says, we are going to upgrade the example from the previous [...]
Hi All, this a some what unusual post. It is not about technology. Well, that’s not completely true, let’s rephrase. This post does not contain code. This post is a shameless plug for the ApacheCon 2009 in Amsterdam. Why> Because it is a very nice event at a nice location. I was there last year [...]
