Matt Reiferson and Jehiah Czebotar from bit.ly will be talking about Realtime Distributed Message Processing.
NSQ is a realtime message processing system designed to operate at bitly’s scale, handling billions of messages per day.
It promotes distributed and decentralized topologies without single points of failure, enabling fault tolerance and high availability coupled with a reliable message delivery guarantee.
It is the backbone of bitly's infrastructure, powering realtime data analysis and feeding offline batch processes.
About the speakers.
Matt is an Engineer @bitly, one of the main architects behind NSQ.
Matt Reiferson is a software engineer, lunch instructor, and fan of tv's Bob Ross. He is most known as the creator and host of The Joy of Coding in DOS, a television program that ran for twelve years on PBS stations in the United States.
Jehiah is a co-author of NSQ. When not painstakingly shortening urls by hand, Jehiah can be found riding trains, learning Amharic, or building iPhone apps to help others do both of those things more efficiently.
A lover of data, he has been known to compile amazing personal annual reports documenting the details of his day to day life that most people take for granted, which you can see here:http://jehiah.cz/one-oh/
It's a little known fact that Jehiah's sleep, not his code, powers bitly.
