How do Google, Twitter, and Instagram ensure fast application performance at scale? One technique is asynchronous messaging using RabbitMQ to prevent application bottlenecks. In this session, we’ll cover common asynchronous messaging patterns and how to implement them in RabbitMQ, common pitfalls to avoid, and how to cluster RabbitMQ for increased scalability and reliability.
