After a bit of a break, the .NET Roundups are back! This week, it’s almost as if Andrew Lock was working on the exact same I was as he had two posts back to back that solved two issues I was having. Incredible timing and as always great content from Andrew.

Project Orleans and the distributed database future with Dr. Philip Bernstein
Forty years ago, database research was an “exotic” field and, because of its business data processing reputation, was not considered intellectually interesting in academic circles. But that didn’t deter Dr. Philip Bernstein, now a Distinguished Scientist in MSR’s Data Management, Exploration and Mining group, and a pioneer in the field.
Today, Dr. Bernstein talks about his pioneering work in databases over the years and tells us all about Project Orleans, a distributed systems programming framework that makes life easier for programmers who aren’t distributed systems experts. He also talks about the future of database systems in a cloud scale world, and reveals where he finds his research sweet spot along the academic industrial spectrum.
