Messages queues don't need to be scary

University of Sheffield Enterprise, 210 Portobello, S1 4AE
6.30pm to 8.30pm

October’s meeting is a talk from Glen Mailer on message queues:

A practical introduction to how and why you should be using a real message queue - at any scale. We’ll have an introduction to message queue concepts and architecture using AMQP and RabbitMQ, exploring why this is useful and what tasks queues are suited for. We’ll then have an opportunity for everyone to try writing queue consumers and publishers against a sample server - no experience necessary!

Ideally attendees should arrive with Ruby 1.9.2+ pre-installed, “gem install bunny” will also save us a bit of setup time and bandwidth.


With the help of epiGenesys, we’re at the Enterprise Zone this month.

Join our Google+ event to let us know you’re coming.

Someone will be around from 18.15 if you’re around and we’ll probably head out to the pub afterwards.
