KC IT Professionals Events/Sponsorship update

Kansas City has a lot of brilliant minds, and the intent of this group is to bring people together for business opportunities and knowledge exchange! Our goal is to continue to grow the community and strengthen it by holding both networking and formalized events (roundtables, lectures, etc). In order to accomplish this, I’m looking for sponsorships from the companies that contribute to Kansas City’s technology sector. Please message me if your company would like a chance to support this group!

Dru Sellers

We only have to look at Amazon SQS and the rise of languages like ERLANG today to see that messaging is a hot subject. But why? In this lecture, Dru addressed the topic of bringing a message oriented architecture into your enterprise.
