ZeroMQ: scriptable sockets

A session at Frozen Rails 2012

Thursday 20th September, 2012

11:30am to 12:00pm (HMT)

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. It's 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
  • Mongrel2 Ruby adapter
  • How to use it from Ruby
  • Small case study
