Writing Workers For Scalable Applications

Excellent presentation for creating offline workers. Really good recommended stack (Beanstalk, Redis, and Supervisord) for getting up and running quickly and reliably. A slightly deeper dive on how to use separate queues for separate jobs would have been nice, but perhaps not possible in the time allotted.

Great talk on how and why to use workers and a nice rundown of one way to do it using beanstalk.
Will certainly be using this information in the future for scalability.

Simple is good! Great info.

You can find the code I used here https://github.com/GeeH/worker-talk - you'll need to change branches from Master to see the code at each stage.

Good talk as an intro to queuing, which would get most companies years down the road. Red on black highlighted text made a few slides hard to read on the projector.

Solid introduction to the concept of workers (and queues), as well as a very common use case to show the need.

Great energy and enthusiasm in the delivery as always, with some really concrete advice on how to get started.

An excellent introduction to this topic. The tools Gary talked about are easy to implement for almost any project, and the code examples were well written and clear to follow.

I will definitely be looking into Beanstalkd.
