Minor announcement in case anyone who lives in London actually reads this thing. :-)
Alexis mentioned to me at wednesday’s London HUG that he’s giving a Birds of a Feather talk on AMQP at No Fluff Just Stuff next week. It looks quite interesting.
If you don’t know, AMQP is a newish protocol for application level messaging. One of the big implementations out there (which is the one Alexis is involved with) is RabbitMQ, which is written in Erlang (which is how I got interested in the subject in the first place). By the sounds of it, they’ve been doing some quite fun and useful things with it. This should definitely be an interesting talk and I highly recommend coming if you’re in the area.
