RabbitMQ Essentials

Book Description

Hop straight into developing your own messaging applications by learning how to utilize RabbitMQ

In Detail

RabbitMQ is above all other forms of message queuing software thanks to its loosely coupled architecture and its ability to bind multiple languages, making modern web applications secure, scalable, and simple to maintain.

Armed with this supportive guide, you now have the opportunity to get stuck into developing your own message-based applications immediately with RabbitMQ. Using the fictitious Clever Coney Media as a case study, you will follow their journey of developing with RabbitMQ, from implementing simple, synchronous get operations to using advanced message routing and tracking the messaging application. With RabbitMQ Essentials, you will observe how using message queuing software can streamline the development of your own distributed and scalable applications.
