June 17, 2013 Stacey Schneider

0511-velocity-logoPivotal is heading to the Velocity Conference in Santa Clara, CA on June 18th-20th.

Velocity continues to be one of the top conferences on operations and performance for the web. Everyone there is passionate about the space—eagerly sharing, learning, and networking around the topics of speed, scale, reliability, and operations.

If you are at the show, be sure to meet and network with our experts: Al Sargent, Paul Santos, Bill Keenan, Tamao Nakahara, Adam Fitzgerald, Scott Deeg, Wayne Lund, and Blake Connell.

Where You can Find Us:

  • Visit us at booth #411 on Wednesday or Thursday—giveaways include Pivotal Rocket Launchers!
  • See Al Sargent’s presentation on Asynchronous Messaging for Performance with RabbitMQ
    • Thursday 6/20 from 3:30-410P in Ballroom F
    • Description: How do Google, Twitter, and Instragram ensure fast application performance at scale? One technique is asynchronous messaging using RabbitMQ to prevent application bottlenecks. In this session, presenter, Al Sargent, will cover common asynchronous messaging patterns and how to implement them in RabbitMQ, common pitfalls to avoid, and how to cluster RabbitMQ for increased scalability and reliability.
