In August 2004 I wrote a presentation called Patterns for SOA that would change my life – really! Since that time I have delivered this talk about 15 times in various locations from San Francisco to Amsterdam to Bangkok and many others. In spite of this I never really knew if this presentation was really helping anyone in getting real systems built until today when I met Denny Boynton who told me how he had taken Patterns for SOA back to his company and began using these principles to help change the way they built services. Sound interesting? Well I thought you might enjoy hearing more about these patterns, anti-patterns and the ways they have been applied.
