Easy Long-Running Tasks In Rails
On Monday night I spoke at the London Ruby User Group on handling long-running tasks in Rails. No fights broke out so I considered it a success.
In a month or so, I’ll return to my people and give an expanded version at Scotland on Rails. The skepticism and incredulity I encountered at LRUG will guide me as I hone my material.
I’m not posting my slides because, by design, they make no sense on their own. If you’d like them anyway, get in touch and I’ll send them to you.
Incidentally, for anyone who was there, my conclusion was: Background Job, also known as BJ, by Ara T Howard.
Here’s an example of using BJ to upload files to Amazon S3 via attachment_fu.
