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.
Media Publishing Workflows using NServiceBus
Dylan Beattie is a systems architect and software developer, who has built everything from tiny standalone websites to large-scale distributed systems. By day, he’s the systems architect at Spotlight (www.spotlight.com), where he works on HTTP APIs, distributed systems, and the architectural challenges of delivering cutting-edge online services in a company with nearly ninety years of legacy. He’s been working with Spotlight since 2000, and his first-hand experience of watching an organisation - and their code - evolving over more than a decade has given him a unique insight into how API design, distributed systems, Conway's Law, working with legacy systems, and recruitment can all influence a company’s products and culture. Alongside his work at Spotlight, Dylan is actively involved in the software development community. He’s involved in running the FullStack and Progressive.NET conferences, and frequently speaks at conferences in the UK and around Europe about software architecture and development culture.
