Recommends it for: Programmers with a good grasp of C, networking

I started reading this book to learn about how to use ZeroMQ, but I got way more than I anticipated out of it. The book's structure is basically: an API introduction, a set of progressively more complex examples demonstrating ZeroMQ's power, a semi-philosophical discussion of how the ZeroMQ community works, and a couple of chapters focusing on advanced architecture and system design with ZeroMQ as the hub.

“Programming is a science dressed up as art, because most of us don’t understand the physics of software and it’s rarely, if ever, taught. The physics of software is not algorithms, data structures, languages, and abstractions. These are just tools we make, use, and throw away. The real physics of software is the physics of people. Specifically, it’s about our limitations when it comes to complexity and our desire to work together to solve large problems in pieces. This is the science of programming: make building blocks that people can understand and use easily, and people will work together to solve the very largest problems.” 5 likes
