Is the glass half empty or half full? The choice between optimistic and pessimistic concurrency is much the same question, particularly when using distributed caching. In this video excerpt from Jon Flanders’ new course Windows Server AppFabric Cache you’ll see how to choose the glass is half full option by implementing optimistic concurrency for your applications caching. In the full course Jon covers the other side of the equation in pessimistic concurrency as well as other key topics such as using local caches, high availability, and ASP.NET session state.
Jon is most at home spelunking, trying to figure out how things work from the inside out. Jon is the author of RESTful.NET from O’Reilly, as well as Essential ASP for Addison-Wesley, and was a co-author of Mastering Visual Studio.NET for O’Reilly. Jon’s current major interest is helping people to understand the advantages of REST.
