Transactions: Over used or just misunderstood?

I gave a presentation at QCon London last week on the above subject. I was part of the Solutions Track and QCon have made the slides available. The room was packed out, which was good though always a little surprising: although transactions are dear to my heart it's not something that lights everyone's fire! It seemed to go down well and there were plenty of questions during and afterwards to convince me that I probably have enough material to do 4 or 5 deep dives into the issues raised by the current presentation. So maybe at the next JUDCon event you'll be able to hear me present on the duality between successful marriages and two-phase commit!
