Quick response times are crucial. Time consuming tasks triggered in web requests should be executed asynchronously, if at all possible. In this talk I will give a short overview of what message queues are and then show a case study how we split up an application into smaller services and how we use message queues to coordinate the services.

Not advanced talk

I expect in advance track more advanced things related with decoupling, less with explanation how queues works. However presentation was quite good.

This talk was interesting as it offered insight in tools and best practises. However, given its context (in the advanced slot) it somehow missed its goal. It's a great introductory talk for sure (given the talks beginning and pace). It's just not advanced.(-1) Also the talk's title "Decoupling an application with message queues" suggested more architectural insight and content than what was actually delivered. (-1)

For whatever it is worth though, the slides and the speaker where both pretty good.

I was expecting more about msg. queue implementation, it was mostly about fundamentals

Decent talk. I was hoping for a bit more in-depth talk about message queues and best practices in how to use them or when to use which type of exchange to use in certain circumstances.
The presentation was clear, but the way of talking could use some practice. Keep up the good work.

It was great and I learned some part of message queues.

David presented his material well, and his slides were well put together, particularly the animations of the queue process.

Unfortunately this wasn’t an advanced talk at all. Even as a beginner intro it wouldn’t have been great because it assumed knowledge of concepts without defining them, but never got beyond basic concepts.

I did not found the introduction bad, i finally understand what the difference from exchange and a queue is. And I like the specific examples in the second part of the talk. Time was too short.

As stated before, I would have put this in the beginner track, given the nature of the talk.
Apart from where it was, this talk did give quite a nice explanation on the basics of message queues and what you can do with it, with nice examples to illustrate it.

Not really advanced enough for me. I think it was just 'short overview of what messages queues are'. I liked that You showed some tooling examples but I really expected more advanced content.

It should go more deep inside the materia
