High-Performance Messaging & Services with Aeron

YOW! 2019 Sydney - 04 Dec

In this workshop, you will learn how to build services with Aeron and SBE in Java. Services capable of handling millions of messages per second with very low and predictable response times. We will cover some networking theory and the design of Aeron so you know how to use it with mechanical sympathy.
