We are an online event management company, that needs to scale up and down, depending on current volume.

How long have you been using Lokad.CQRS? How do you find it?

I think we started looking at Lokad around August, 2010.
—Scott Cate

Why does Lokad.CQRS work for you? What is you favorite feature?

It's CQRS, for Azure, with a brilliant code base. Saves us time from having to reinvent the wheel.
—Scott Cate

I can't thank Lokad enough for the work you guys have put in. You have literally saved our startup thousands of man-hours.
—Chris Martin

How many people do you have working on CQRS related projects?

1 or 2

What's their take on getting started with Lokad.CQRS, on documents and community?

Lokad.CQRS is damn near perfect at the moment. However, I think if you included the DSL for generating messages, that would remove a lot of friction.
The most important thing for us right now, missing from Lokad.CQRS, is Event Sourcing. I've given it a shot with the new TapeStorage feature, but haven't had enough time to get it right.

The next thing I would like to see is some sort of "real-world" sample.
—Chris Martin

All these items have been added to Lokad.CQRS since the time of this case study:

  • DSL for generating messages
  • Event Sourcing
  • Sample Application that derives from real-world projects
  • and much more...
