Why writing yet another book about RabbitMQ? After all, there are already several very excellent books on the subject out there. I think Ross Mason gave the best answer to this question on Twitter:
Let me further articulate the reasons why I decided to embark on this new book project while the ink on Mule in Action is still wet:
- RabbitMQ is a great piece of open source technology and I think it can use all the coverage it can get. From the get go, RabbitMQ has been built with the idea to make things right: it's a breeze to install and configure. Adding extra plug-ins is a no-brainer. It's enterprise-grade software without the enterprise kludge. Moreover, AMQP is one of the rare messaging protocol that is truly interoperable so it too deserves to be discussed again and again.
- It's 2014 and surprisingly many developers still don't have a good grasp of messaging concepts. Beyond covering RabbitMQ, I'm covering more general principles around building distributed applications that leverage messaging as a decoupling agent. In the book, I'm sharing the love for everything asynchronous!
- I love to write not only code but about coding as well. I'm not an outdoor person by any stretch of imagination, so this new book is a perfect project for the gloomy and wet winter that we get in the Pacific North-West.
Hopefully you'll enjoy this journey too and will learn a few things while reading RabbitMQ Essentials. You can pre-order your copy right from PackT's website.
Now what could be the next animal I could write about?

The basic integration architecture, as defined by ESBs, hasn’t changed for more than a decade. Most cloud integration providers still rely on an ESB architecture and their proprietary connectors. As a result, enterprise integration projects suffer from constraints of availability and reliability of these connectors that are not re-usable across other integration vendors. However, the rapid adoption of APIs and almost ubiquitous availability of APIs amongst most SaaS and Cloud applications are ra...
