php-resque

Resque (pronounced like “rescue”) is a Redis-backed ruby library for creating background jobs, placing those jobs on multiple queues, and processing them later. This was ported to php by Chris Boulton and is available on github.

We @ Big Commerce have started a meetup called Sydney Web Apps and today we had our second meetup. I gave a presentation today @ this meetup talking about php-resque and how we use it at Big Commerce. The slide deck is available on slideshare.

[Edit]: We have processed, in a little over 2 weeks, in excess of 6 Million jobs without a single failure or load issue. #win 🙂

It would be remiss of me if I did not mention we are hiring.
