Software Architecture using ZeroMQ

ZeroMQ is an open source library that connects your components over different transports and in various patterns. In this talk I'll explain how to use ZeroMQ for large-scale distributed architecture design. The key points are the use of contracts and rapid iterative design cycles. I'm the author of the upcoming O'Reilly book on ZeroMQ, co-founder of the project and veteran of dozens of large distributed software projects.
