Introduction to Celery

Speaker: Shanmuga

Cases when number of tasks are submitted to task queue which needs to be processed asynchronously Celery saves the day. Celery distributes and coordinates the tasks over multiple workers (may be running on different machine). It also scales well with addition/removal of workers on the fly to handle those occasional burst work load between long periods of calm.

With the flexibility to support multiple message brokers and custom extension for various modules it addresses a wide variety of retirements.
