Services design: IPC

With this tutorial series we are going to explore and implement with multiple code languages the functionality of a powerful type of programs: the services. A service is a program that waits for other program interaction to perform a task in background with an independent context.

We can start communicating two services using POSIX message queues. As each service can use their own context we can implement each service with different coding language. For our examples we are going to view their implementation using C++, Python and Rust language.
