Microsoft Adds SoCreate’s Open Source Projects to Service Fabric Best Practices

We may be considered a small software company, but our team is doing BIG things in the industry. Microsoft just added two of SoCreate’s open source projects to its Service Fabric guide for best practices.

Jami Lurock presents to Microsoft

Mark Fussell, Group Program Manager for Microsoft Azure, recently invited SoCreate’s Chief Engineer Jami Lurock to give Microsoft staff a demo on SoCreate Service Fabric Distributed Cache and SoCreate Service Fabric Pub/Sub over a web conference. SoCreate built these open source projects as a way to solve our own challenges while building the SoCreate screenwriting software infrastructure. In addition, we built a third open source project, called Service Fabric Data Protection

Distributed Cache replaces the need to use a stateful service such as Redis or SQL Server as a cache store. Pub/Sub allows developers to reliably broadcast messages between actors and services as publishers and subscribers, for scaling applications.  

Microsoft now recommends both of these SoCreate projects in its Azure Service Fabric Application Design Best Practices.  

“Thank you for creating such amazing Service Fabric projects, which we have been pointing customers at,” Fussell said.  

Thank you, Microsoft for the SoCreate shoutout!

SoCreate Launches 2 New Open Source Projects - ‘Service Fabric’ Reliable Services

When it came time to build out SoCreate’s screenwriting software infrastructure, we evaluated several options for managing our application cache and data protection. Our SoCreate engineers are big fans of Microsoft Service Fabric, a distributed systems platform that makes it easy to package, launch, and manage scalable microservices and containers. Service Fabric also addresses challenges related to developing and managing cloud native applications. So, rather than using Redis or SQL Server as a cache store, we built our own Service Fabric ’Distributed Cache’ service, then leveraged...

$100k Investment Shows Support for Startups in SLO

“Why is SoCreate in SLO?” “There’s not much tech in that area.” “Wouldn’t it be easier if you were located in the Bay? Or LA?” “Where is the heck San Luis Obispo?” “S-L-O. Like slow, like a snail?” And the questions go on and on. Between media interviews, out-of-area conferences, and friends and family, I’ve been asked any number of questions about my experience working for a screenwriting software startup in little ol’ San Luis Obispo. But after attending the Central California Angel Conference (CCAC), all my doubts about the startup culture in SLO have been allayed. Hundreds of industry folks turned...
