9. Queues & Workers

A Queue+Worker infrastructure is meant:

  • to run asynchronous jobs,
  • scale up & down easily.

A message contains the data required to run a job. A Queue is where the messages are posted, its like a job board. A Worker performs all the heavy lifting and finishes the job based on the message.
