Sending and receiving messages is a common task in software.

Fedora Infrastructure has many event-driven services, we'll discuss some of the problems we encountered and their solutions. Topics include:

* How to pick the right message protocol.
* How to design a "good message". How to recover when you inevitably don't design a "good message" or when the meaning of the word "good" changes.
* Networking: centralized or decentralized?
* How to deal with lost messages. Is it bad? Should you care?

Each topic contains plenty of concrete examples from Fedora Infrastructure.
At the end of this talk, the audience should be well-equipped to not repeat the mistakes we made and instead go make new and interesting mistakes.

This talk does not require prior knowledge of any message protocols.
