Most developers write them and every company has them – a vast library of small and large scripts that are designed to run on a scheduled basis. These background angels help keep the lights on and the doors open. They’ve been built up over time and are forgotten little heroes that are only remembered when the machines they live on fail. They are scattered throughout a company’s IT infrastructure and do important things.
In this session, we will explain how to use Ruby on Simple Workflow to quickly build a system that schedules scripts, runs them on time, retries them if they fail, and stores the history of their execution. You will walk away from this session with an understanding of how Simple Workflow brings resiliency, concurrency, and tracking to your applications.
