Implementing Google Protocol Buffers in .NET

About the Topic:

As you can probably imagine, inside Google massive amounts of data is passed around between a variety of disparate applications. Many of these applications were written in different languages and run on different platforms, but they must be capable of communicating quickly and efficiently with each other. In 2008, Google introduced Protocol Buffers (protobufs), a simple, extensible, platform independent serialization protocol which they now use as their lingua franca (vehicular language) between their applications. In this presentation we’ll learn about the protobuf standard, how to easily implement them in .NET and then we’ll watch a demonstration of an application using protobufs running circles around ones using Xml and Json.

AWS ONLINE TALKS: Uninterrupted Business

Cloud security at AWS is the highest priority. As an AWS customer, you will benefit from a data center and network architecture built to meet the requirements of the most security-sensitive organisations.
An advantage of the AWS cloud is that it allows customers to scale and innovate, while maintaining a secure environment. Customers pay only for the services they use, meaning that you can have the security you need, but without the upfront expenses, and at a lower cost than in an on-premises environment.
