Distributed Processing Applications with Helios
Andrew Johnson will be giving a talk at YAPC::NA 2012 described as:
Helios is a distributed job processing system that allows users to write applications to spread workloads across multiple processes and servers. The Helios job queuing, configuration, and logging APIs aim to provide a user with an environment to easily write applications that scale across multiple processes and hosts. My talk will focus on Helios basic concepts and features (especially new features introduced in the new 2.4x series) with a particular interest in how to write simple Helios applications. I will also cover best practices for getting the best performance out of the Helios environment.
