Message Queues for Everyone

Thursday 21st November 7:00pm at The Manchester Digital Laboratory (MadLab)

This month, Glen Mailer will be giving us a practical introduction to how and why you should be using a real message queue - at any scale.

We’ll have a short introduction to message queue concepts and architecture using AMQP and RabbitMQ, exploring why this is helpful and what queues can be used for. We’ll then have a workshop session where attendees can write queue consumers and publishers against a sample server, giving you a taste of working with a system like this.

As this will be an interactive session, please feel free to bring your laptops if you wish to participate. Ideally you should arrive with Ruby 1.9 installed as well as installing the “bunny” gem with ‘gem install bunny’.

The speaker

Glen Mailer is a Sheffield-based Developer and Consultant.
