Distribution, Scale and Flexibility with ZeroMQ

In this talk Pieter Hintjens explains the basic techniques for building very large distributed systems using fast asynchronous messaging in general, and ZeroMQ specifically. Pieter Hintjens (@hintjens) is the lead maintainer of ZeroMQ, and CEO of iMatix Corporation. Pieter speaks English, French, Dutch, and pieces of a dozen other languages. He plays with a West AfricZeroMQan drum group in Brussels, is a certified pistol instructor in Texas, and is currently learning Korean. He lives with his lovely family in Brussels, Belgium but travels extensively for work. This talk was recorded at Code Mesh 2013.  (http://codemesh.io)

ØMQ (also spelled ZeroMQ, 0MQ or ZMQ) is a high-performance asynchronous messaging library aimed at use in scalable distributed or concurrent applications. It provides a message queue, but unlike message-oriented middleware, a ØMQ system can run without a dedicated message broker. The library is designed to have a familiar socket-style API. You can find out more about ZeroMQ at – Link.

ØMQ is developed by a large community of contributors, founded by iMatix, which holds the domain name and trademarks. There are third-party bindings for many popular programming languages.

This presentation was recorded at Code Mesh (http://codemesh.io) London is an annual conference dedicated to non-mainstream languages and technologies. In 2013 it featured over 50 talks from experts in languages, libraries, operating systems and technologies that handle the programming and business challenges of today. Languages discussed include Haskell, Clojure, Erlang, Elixir, Rust, Go and Julia.

The presentation is hosted at InfoQ – Link. InfoQ was founded in 2006 with the purpose of facilitating the spread of knowledge and innovation in enterprise development. InfoQ provides their audience with unbiased, practitioner-driven conferences, content, and an online community. You can read more about InfoQ at Link.
