RabbitMQ | Learn to Install, Configure & Develop Applications via RabbitMQ

RabbitMQ Course Description

RabbitMQ is a message queue for processing tasks asynchronously. It can be very useful in tasks like file transcoding, delivering notifications, and asynchronous or delayed calculations. Message queue systems are especially useful in systems where's it necessary to decouple heavy-weight processing from a live user request. 

This intensive three-day, instructor-led course in RabbitMQ provides a deep dive into how to install, configure, and develop applications which leverage RabbitMQ messaging. The course begins with RabbitMQ installation and general configuration. It continues with developing messaging applications using the Java APIs, and delves into more advanced topics including clustering, high availability, performance, and security. Modules are accompanied by lab exercises that provide hands-on experience

    This is great

    I really love the course editor in LearnPress. It is never easier when creating courses, lessons, quizzes with this one. It's the most useful LMS WordPress plugin I have ever used. Thank a lot! Testing quiz is funny, I like the sorting choice question type most.
