(Given to the Vancouver Erlang Meetup group on October 12, 2010.)
"Intro to RabbitMQ"
RabbitMQ is a flexible piece of software that can solve many kinds of problems that an MVC framework can't, and can act as a glue for your system. In this talk, I'll give a brief overview of message queuing, the AMQP API, and some use cases for Rabbit. Afterwords, I'll dive into an interactive demo using Rabbit and then quickly cover some implementation details (the code will be posted online if you're interested in digging into it further).
Ken loves learning about software old and new, and knows more languages than you can shake a byte at. He aspires to someday be able to refer to himself as a Software Craftsman, even though it's unlikely that anyone will know what he means by that and/or care. He's been using Erlang full-time for a couple years now on a few different projects, and quite enjoys it (but Ruby is still his favourite).
