An Englishmans guide to Queueing

Paul Hammond, 4 October 2012

I talked about job queues today at the 2012 Velocity London Conference.

I wanted to give the talk I wish someone had given a few years ago, before I learned a bunch of lessons the hard way. In particular I don't know of any examples of people talking about how to handle errors in a job queue, which seems important. I also talked about why idempotency is awesome, and how to monitor your queues.

The talk wasn't recorded, but the full set of slides is online as a 3MB HTML page or a 900KB PDF file.
