I'm excited to be giving a webinar on Wednesday (December 18th, 2013) at 9am MST (so that translates to 8am PST, 11 EST, and 16:00 UTC). I've already heard that the signups for this event are off the charts, so thanks to everyone who plans to join.
The webinar I'll be giving will be about Apache Camel, middleware, and how to simplify enterprise integrations.
Apache Camel is the de-facto standard "integration library". Even so, I still often get asked "What is Apache Camel" and "why would I use it?"
The short answer comes down to this: Are you trying to get two systems (or more!) to talk to each other in order to help support a business service or business process? Or, are you trying to intelligently route, aggregate, or transform data/messages from producers to consumers? And lastly, do your integration points speak different protocols, transports, or languages?
Then yes, Apache Camel is for you.
The webinar will container a slightly longer answer with some more color, defined concepts, step throughs, and a live demo!
