Spotlight is one of the world’s leading resources for professional actors, casting directors and production professionals. Over the last few years, Spotlight have faced the challenge of migrating their monolithic on-site infrastructure onto a cloud hosted environment, whilst simultaneously delivering new products and features to their customers.
Publishing photography and multimedia online is a key part of the service, and NServiceBus is a key part of the systems that drive our multimedia publishing workflows. Spotlight have used it to decouple legacy systems from their hosting environments, and to create loosely-coupled encoding workflows for audio and video, and in this talk Dylan will discuss why Spotlight chose NServiceBus, how they integrated it with legacy systems, and how using NSB influenced the design and architecture of their greenfield applications.
