Book Review: RabbitMQ Essentials by David Dossot

I have been working on integrating with RabbitMQ to implement the messaging architecture. All the time I made use of the basic tutorials available on RabbitMQ site to wade through understanding different concepts around AMQP and RabbitMQ.RabbitMQ Essentials

Yesterday I got to read the RabbitMQ Essentials by David Dossot. Its a pretty short and totally hands on book. The good things about the book:

I already had familiarity with communication constructs of RabbitMQ and didn’t find it difficult to understand the content and intent of the author. It also helped me to understand few intricate aspects like Dead letter queue and how to handle them, handling mandatory messages, setting ttl on the messages, different exchange types like direct, topic and fanout.

I feel the book is good read for anyone who has started using RabbitMQ and has worked on integrating with the client API. This book will help you correct your implementation and also understand few gotchas which one would encounter in real life projects.
