This month, we're bringing you something special! With the upcoming GA release of the much-anticipated Partitioned Queues feature, Dev Advocate Aaron Lee is bringing in a special guest from HQ to discuss all the details and to give a demo. Product owner Rob Tomkins works in the Product Line Management (PLM) group, and he has overseen a bunch of cool Solace features and products. As usual, they’ll be answering questions live on-air, so be sure to tune in. Otherwise, post your question beforehand below.
