Karl Anderson is Giving the Following Talks
Handling a Polyglotten WAN

In the ever expanding world of cloud computing, messaging across back-end systems must be done quickly, reliably, and accurately 100% of the time. In this talk, we will discuss how AMQP is the open standard application layer protocol with Erlang implementation through RabbitMQ that successfully meets  these needs. It serves as a rendezvous point for back-end systems to communicate efficiently and reliably while providing extensive features and full functionality for all languages to communicate with one another, otherwise known as polyglot programming. 

Talk objectives: Give an overview of AMQP strengths and pain points. Demonstrate how it uses RabbitMQ to keep everything in native Erlang data type.

Target audience: Developers and System Engineers.
