Hello and welcome everybody to our TNWiki Article Spotlight on Tuesday.
Queues are nowadays everywhere. They have been around for a long time. With the advent of Cloud Computing queue got an extra push. On Azure we have two ways to work with queues, queues in Azure Storage and queues in Azure Service Bus. A while ago Steef-Jan pointed out some resources related to Azure Service Bus. Today I want to introduce an article which is more specific. Azure Service Bus Messaging with Queues using Sessions, authored by chilberto, takes a really practical approach. A small scenario is introduced and step-by-step, with a code snippet related to the specific step, the message is received from the queue and a handler is registered. The end of the article describes a nice feature which most people forget in reality: dead letters.
If you are interested in Azure Service Bus, especially in the queue service, and love practical approaches this article will give you a quick start.
