Join us at RMC Research (1000 Market Street, Portsmouth, NH) Monday,
19 July 2010 at 7pm for the July edition of NHRuby. We meet and share
projects and questions surrounding Ruby, Rails, and related
technologies — all are welcome.

This month, we are thrilled to welcome Nick Plante back to the podium
to talk about Redis and Resque! Nick is using both Redis and Resque in
production to power portions of the backend of his UI test and verify
service, Mogotest.

Redis is a fast key-value store, like Memcache but with more awesome.
It features a (semi-)non-volatile data store and access to more
sophisticated data structures like lists, sets, and ordered sets, all
of which can be manipulated with a variety of powerful atomic
operations. I’ll talk about how we’re using Redis in production at
Mogotest, what it’s good for, what it’s not good for. I’ll also
describe how we’re using Resque, a simple job queue system built on
top of Redis, to handle a variety of asynchronous background tasks.

So join us Monday for an evening of code, conversation, and the
company of your fellow Rubyists. Directions and more information can
be found at http://nhruby.org
