June 2012 Meeting - Lightweight and Scalable Messaging with RabbitMQ

June 2012 Meeting
As you may have been following, the group is under going some changes for the best.  June will be our first meeting in one of the new locations in St Petersburg.  This month's meeting will be about the messaging enterprise pattern using RabbitMQ.  Ensure that you RSVP to attend the meeting.  If your name is not on the list, we cant guarantee entry to the new meeting facility!  Hope to see you there.

Lightweight and Scalable Messaging with RabbitMQ
You have have done this before (or know someone who has):
  • Using your database as a messaging backbone no longer scales.
  • Then, you decide to introduce a JMS-based broker (from IBM or TICO or <substitute vendor>)
  • Since JMS is a Java API, now your Python front-end web application can't send message.
  • You now have to build a Java web service to be called by your Python front-end so you can use your messaging system.
  • Ok, let's stop with the madness
Enter RabbitMQ
A lightweight, scalable, open source messaging system that implements the AMQP protocol (what the heck is that, you may ask).  For our June 2012 meeting, we are going to explore RabbitMQ and its differentiation from other messaging product stack you may already be using today.  Topics for the meeting will include:
  • Intro to Messaging Pattern
  • Intro to RabbitMQ
  • Understand AMQP vs JMS
  • AMQP Constructs for Messaging
  • Tooling and Language Support
  • Code Demos
