To kick start 2014 we're joined by Glen Mailer who will provide a practical introduction to how and why you should be using a real message queue - at any scale. We'll have a short introduction to message queue concepts and architecture using AMQP and RabbitMQ, exploring why this is helpful and what queues can be used for.
We'll then have a workshop session where attendees can write queue consumers and publishers against a sample server, giving you a taste of working with a system like this.
Ideally attendees should arrive with Node.js 0.10.x pre-installed, "npm install amqp" will also save us a bit of setup time and bandwidth.
Glen's session promises to be a mix of talk and hands-on coding workshop. So why not join us at our new sponsor's (aql) venue in the historic Salem Chapel which is opposite The Tetley from 7pm?
As ever there will be food, drink and prizes and a fantastic community of like minded developers all keen to learn more about Node.js
Please note the group is intended for developers looking to expand their knowledge in a recruiter free zone only so whilst interest from recruitment consultants is nice we have a no recruiters policy.
