Asynchronous Processing in Web Apps, Part 2: Developers Need to Understand Message Queues
A few months ago I published an article about asynchronous processing and how a database is often not well-suited to the task. The article was well received by many other developers that recognize the important of understanding all the tools available in our toolbox for sound system architecture design. Today, I have published part two in my series which digs deep into the details of message queues, how they work, and which options exist today. I believe in the modern development world that every developer should understand message queues. If you at all interested in background processing, message queues and how to integrate them into your applications, please be sure to let me know what you think.
