Dear God What Am I Doing? Concurrency and Parallel Processing
I gave this talk at RubyConf AU last week. I also gave this same talk at wroc_love.rb I'd like to share with my german friends as well!
Here's a situation we've all be in at one point. We have a program. We want to make that program faster. We know about threads, processes, fibers. Then you start programming and you have no clue what to do. I was there. It sucks. This talk guides you down the rabbit hole and brings out the other side.
- Threads, Fibers
- Processes, Forking, Detaching
- Parellelism vs Concurrency
- The many many different ways I crashed my computer learning these things
- Gotchas of each
- Common ways you shoot yourself in the foot
This is a learning and informative talk. It's target at intermediate developers who have ruby experience but never written any multi threaded code.
