Message Handling and Command Processing with Wolverine by Erik Shafer

Modern application development has an ever-evolving list of desirable traits. Decoupled, asynchronous, parallelable, idempotent, extensible, and have it deployed yesterday. How can we empower developers to be able to focus on bringing value to the business when time and energy are spent on working with or around technical constraints?

Wolverine is a new framework with mature roots that handles local commands and asynchronous messages between processes in .NET. With several existing tools in the .NET ecosystem, what makes this one worthwhile?

In this talk, we will go over Wolverine’s unique approach that allows developers to write the simplest possible code instead of forcing you to use crufty framework constructs. We’ll also demonstrate the out-of-the-box integration with .NET logging, Open Telemetry tracing, as well as strategies for both unit and integration testing. Lastly, we’ll cover how pairing Wolverine with the Marten library can produce a highly effective framework for applications that use CQRS and Event Sourcing and examine how they open up easier Event-Driven Architecture strategies.
