Removing Cron From The PHP Workflow


Comments are closed.

It was interesting. Went over using Redis and Reque to do async stuff in PHP. Didn't really go into the title topic, but at least got the tools to find out how to do such things. (Turns out, Reque doesn't support Cron-style tasks that are done at intervals - setting the intervals needs to be done manually by rescheduling every time a task is done. That is a feature that's coming, though.)

Good points. I intended to get the recurring task functionality developed (and maybe even merged upstream) before the conference, but that obviously didn't happen. Lesson learned: More preparation, not less.

I'm glad you got something out of it, at least. And thanks for the feedback!
