Concurrency and more, with EventMachine and Redis

May 11, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

I’m building a simple rate limiter for a piece of complex code. The limiter is a standalone Ruby program that uses EventMachine and Redis, but doesn’t use Rails or even ActiveRecord.

In this meeting I’ll describe the problem that my code solves and walk everyone through how I decomposed the problem into smaller pieces. I’ll then show how the pieces are tied together as well as the testing tools that I’ve set up.

This will be sort of like a baking program where I’ll discuss the ingredients and and show how I mix them together, but to save time I’ll pull a finished (I hope it’s finished by then) piece of code out of the oven after having skipped some of the boring aspects.

My aim is a mixture of high level overviews of Ruby concurrency topics as well as some nitty-gritty specifics.
