It's the message, stupid: python & amqp
[EuroPython 2011] Muharem Hrnjadovic - 21 June 2011 in "Track Ravioli"
Messaging is a well established domain in information technology and can greatly improve the scalability and throughput of a system when employed appropriately. Message queues can be used to achieve
- spatial decoupling i.e. the systems that produce and consume messages may be deployed on different machines, networks, continents etc.
- temporal decoupling i.e. a system can enqueue a message and carry on without waiting for the message consumer.
There is a huge number of messaging patterns identified in the industry and a small selection of these will be presented to whet your appetite :-)
In the course of the presentation you will be - introduced to AMQP concepts and jargon - introduced to available Python AMQP bindings (focussing on an asynchronous (txAMQP) and a synchronous variant (most likely kombu) - shown code examples demonstrating how to use these Python bindings
The presentation (45 minutes in total) is structured as follows:
- 7.5 minutes for messaging concepts and patterns
- 7.5 minutes for AMQP concepts
- 5 minutes for an overview of the Python bindings for AMQP
- 10 minutes for txAMQP examples (asynchronous bindings)
- 10 minutes for kombu examples (synchronous bindings)
- 5 minutes for questions
