Growing our workforce

Diego Kuperman — 20 minutes 🐪

Our architecture at is highly event oriented since day one. We implemented resque for Perl and since then we've been using and abusing it. Nowadays it supports a huge workload with lots of workers distributed among many boxes on many queues. Last year we implemented a new product. It has grown so big that our way of handling workers and queues has become the biggest of our problems.

In this talk I will explain our problem in detail, some new stuff I've added to perl-resque to allow our solution to work, how we solved it and some planned improvements we still have in our roadmap.
