ZeroMQ: Scriptable Sockets

A session at eurucamp 2012

Saturday 18th August, 2012

10:15am to 10:45am (CET)

ZeroMQ is a socket abstraction and concurrency framework that's changing
the way we think and reason about distributed systems. Mailboxes, atomic
message delivery and swappable transports allow for fast, flexible and
resilient network topologies. Its I/O model also sits very well with
all Ruby implementations. In this talk we'll discuss:

  • What's wrong with socket I/O ?
  • Supported messaging patterns
  • Transport agnostic messaging
  • Resiliency (operations and upgrades)
  • Building out topologies just in time (interjection principle)
  • Performance and throughput
  • The Mongrel2 Ruby adapter
  • How to use it from Ruby
  • Small case study
