Beanstalkd and Job Queues in Ruby
Recently, we have been making strides to improve documentation and ruby interfaces for beanstalkd, arguably one of the best job queues available for web applications today. First, we converted the beanstalkd protocol to markdown for better readability. Then, we introduced a brand new production-ready beanstalkd client called Beaneater. In addition, we have released v0.2.0 of Backburner, a complete resque-esque gem for fast, robust and reliable background processing using Beanstalkd. If you have never checked out beanstalkd, be sure to let me know what you think!
