Message Passing with Perl

  • May 3, 2012 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Dana Diederich of LiveOps will be leading a discussion about an unusual method of message based programming in Perl. In the spirit of TIMTOWTDI (There Is More Than One Way To Do it), Dana will be presenting a new CPAN module that implements message passing using a venerable but still relevant mechanism. Key features of this methodology include seamless multi-processing without threads, clustering and highly scalable systems. The well-known and excellent POE module will also be lightly covered.

    Pleasantly surprised with Dana Diedrich's IPC::Transit. It's just what I needed for work.

    Although I would use the term, "Event driven programming", Dana Diedrich insists that the term be "Message Passing". I'm not sure of the exact nature of what Dana is planning, but from discussing the topic with Dana, you'll either love him or hate him for what he says. Dana Diedrich is not playing safe.

    With all due respect to Message Passing wth Perl, I thought the topic used to be Event-Driven programming. Did something change recently?
