Happy New Year!

2014 seam to have flown by… Lots of exiting things happened, some public some private.

I can say I’ve learnt a lot and had the opportunity to speak at NSBCon NYC and the WebSummit Dublin, attended great conferences like Craft in Budapest, NSBCon London and NYC, Build Stuff in Vilnius, I met a lot of interesting people and learn a lot of interesting things i don’t get to do on my day to day work.

On the work front was also very interesting and i’m looking forward to this new year.

Happy New Year!


NSBcon London 2014 the first NServiceBus conference

I spent the last week in London and attended two events relating to NServiceBus.

The ADSD unconformance was my first unconference , and it was very interesting. The attendances are alumni of Udi Dahan’s Advanced Distributed Systems Design with SOA course. The ADSD course had been running for the last couple of years all over the world and I had the opportunity to meet up with the guys I did the course with in Stockholm. I was the caretaker of two sessions, one was about “3rd party integration and Service Boundaries” and the other was titled “How are you using NServiceBus”. All discussions where very interesting and a chance to hear what other developers are thinking, doing and are puzzled about with NServiceBus and SOA.


Thursday and Friday it was NSBCon, it was the first NServiceBus conference and so it is a major milestone for NServiceBus users and the Particular platform.


Udi started with the keynote, NServiceBus Past, Present, and Future, apologizing for the past 🙂 doing a bit of a retrospective and excited about the future of NServiceBus and the Particular platform.

Chocolatey: The ‘minClientVersion’ attribute is not declared

While testing the Particular Platform Installer I got a message ‘This installer has detected you are running an old version of Chocolatey ….

platform installer

So i launched powershell and typed ‘cup’ and got an error: ‘The ‘minClientVersion’ attribute is not declared’, not a very informative error…

However, a quick google search lead me to this post: and following the instructions in ‘Update your chocolatey nuget client’ did the job. Kudos to David Alpert

So now all i had to do is to click the Re-Check button and continue with the installation.
