Messaging is as fundamental to software architecture as data types, yet most developers do not utilize it. Operating systems are event driven via messages, the internet is message driven via HTTP/SMTP etc. yet developers rarely use messaging as a solution to complex architectural problems like threading, shuttling data between applications (IPC) and distributing load across machines. In the last few years, ZeroMQ has become mainstream and is an excellent implementation of broker-less messaging with bindings for 20+ languages including C, C++, Java, .NET, Python and Most OS'es including Linux, Windows, OS X. IT is open source LGPL free software and has a large user base. This is significant for server side implementation, because rigid development design often breaks when it needs to scale. The presentation will cover communication transports, messaging patterns, Socket objects, message structures and Multi-threading for Multi Cores outlined here: http://www.coastrd.com/zeromq-messaging
