Software Architecture using ZeroMQ



Pieter Hintjens explains how to use contracts and rapid iterative design cycles to architect large-scale distributed systems with ZeroMQ.


Pieter Hintjens started a games company over 30 years ago and has been building software products since then. Today focuses on building communities through “Social Architecture”, writing, and helping others use ZeroMQ profitably. His Guide to ZeroMQ is coming out as an O’Reilly book (summer 2012). He is writing a new book, “Software and Silicon”, about the impact of the Internet on our world.

About the conference

Strange Loop is a multi-disciplinary conference that aims to bring together the developers and thinkers building tomorrow's technology in fields such as emerging languages, alternative databases, concurrency, distributed systems, mobile development, and the web. Strange Loop was created in 2009 by software developer Alex Miller and is now run by a team of St. Louis-based friends and developers under Strange Loop LLC, a for-profit but not particularly profitable venture.

    Thanks, Cameron! I really enjoyed giving this talk at Strange Loop last year. It was the core of chapter 6 of my ZeroMQ book for O'Reilly. Cheers, Pieter.
