nanomsg: simple smart sockets

nanomsg is a socket library that provides several common communication patterns to help build distributed systems. It aims to make the networking layer fast, scalable, and easy to use. Implemented in C, it works on a wide range of operating systems with no further dependencies.

This talk will give a short history of the nanomsg project, an explanation of the value provided by nanomsg in building distributed systems, and a demonstration of some key features.
