The modern computing landscape is choc full of languages, each with novel features or suited to solving particular problems. However, to truly unlock the power of modern hardware -- and modern culture -- developers must start *socializing* the code written in these languages. But getting disparate tribes to talk to one another is no easy feat! Fortunately, this example-driven talk will show how ZeroMQ (a light-weight and powerful communications library) can connect many diverse languages, platforms, and cultures. Particular emphasis will be placed on the cross-cutting patterns which facilitate robust and complex solutions regardless of programming language. ZeroMQ will be shown as conductor, conspirator, and compatriot. In the end, we'll see 7 languages, across 2 platforms, connected via 1 fantastic technology.
