Message queuing is becoming an essential part of modern architectures and essential for asynchronous architectures and microservices. In this session will be described the benefits of messaging systems, the software solutions that are available and typical messaging architectures. Examples will be made using Azure Storage Queues, Azure Service Bus and RabbitMQ. This talk is primarily about messaging, however as this session is for tech hipsters, the demos will be done giving an extensive introduction to Azure functions, Azure Resource Manager Templates, .Net Core and Docker.
John Staveley is an organiser at LeedsSharp with 17 years programming experience and has been a heavy user of RabbitMQ and Azure in the past couple of years.
This meeting is at On The Beach, in the Aeroworks building on Adair Street. This is situated in-between Piccadilly Station and Great Ancoats Street and is a 5-10 minutes walk from the city centre.
There will be someone in the foyer who will sign you in and then tell you how to find the venue.
This is a free event - there is no charge for a ticket.
We often get enough RSVP's for there to be a waiting list; the list has always cleared by the early part of the week of the talk, but this relies on you releasing your ticket if you can no longer attend. Please remember to do this if your plans change.
Please ensure we have an email address that you do look at, so we can let you know of any last minute changes; and please use your full name on the site as it's the only way we, or the fire service, can account for you in the case of an evacuation/emergency/fire etc.
We order a van-load of pizza for our half time break. If you have any special dietary requirements please let us know via the group message forum. (https://secure.meetup.com/messages/)
If you would need assistance to leave the building in the event of an evacuation then please let us know via the group message forum. (https://secure.meetup.com/messages/)
Note for recruitment professionals - we don't exclude recruiters from our meetings but we would ask you to contact Rick Garner for a brief chat before you start attending.
