What I learned from fnstraj - Backend Edition
After spending as long as I have with fnstraj, I wanted to share what I’ve learned throughout this crazy experience. Beware - This is a technical post!
Queue Systems: Working with queue systems was very new for me. I really wanted to create something that would just sit there and run for months at a time, executing prediction items as they came in. I choose Heroku and Cloudant for this task. I wrote my own queue worker for fnstraj and it works well! I am still learning lots about how to queue more effectively through a new project, and plan on merging those changes into fnstraj in the future. It’s hard! Queue systems make tons of compromises, and I have a much better understanding of what the minimum requirements for a queue for heavy-processing items are now.
