About the Book

Messaging is the best idea we have so-far arrived at for dealing with the problem of distributed systems, and that problem looms larger than ever in the lives of many software developers. Messaging as an idea is built on a history of engineers addressing immediate problems. By looking at those people, their challenges and the solutions they arrived at we can begin to understand the fundamentals that run through all messaging systems. This book takes a tour through some notable messaging systems and standards, with the goal of reflecting the ideas we can use to build our own.
