Django Messaging: Build Distributed, Run Concurrent


Understand the growing role of messaging in today's state of the art web applications, cloud computing infrastructures, and the Internet of Things (IoT).

This talk will take you on a tour of the various messaging libraries and protocols that can be used with Django.  Learn what ZeroMQ is, how to leverage AMQP via RabbitMQ, or how to start solving your concurrent problems quickly with Celery.


Paul Ricker is a seasoned software engineer with over a decade of experience developing complex, distributed software systems.  Paul got his start in industry working for Lockheed Martin and MIT Lincoln Laboratory.  He has firsthand knowledge of how to build large software systems for everything from high performance military fighter aircraft to your run of the mill ecommerce website.  Paul currently owns and operates a local software consultancy he started in 2009, named Industrial Software LLC.  He has been a longtime user and avid fan of the Python language and Django framework.

    Hey Everyone!

    I’d like to thank all of you for attending the talk the other night. I really appreciate the turn out and feedback. I’m glad to hear the talk was of interest to so many. I know one hour wasn’t much to cover everything in detail so feel free to reach out to me with any questions. Or better yet, come on out next month and we can grab a beer after and chat.

    All the best,

    Very thorough and led by a clearly qualified presenter. The only snag is, I would've liked to have heard a bit more (on a code level) about use cases that Ricker has tackled or maybe a sandbox type example that we could all witness/run alongside on our own machines. We got some of that, but it's great to hear how other members would run with it, so to speak. I have a passing interest in the equity market, market history, and have also made extensive use of message passing in Objective-C, so I dug it.
