NWRUG May - Concurrent Ruby

location MadLab | 6:30 PM-9 AM Thursday 21 May 2015 (BST)

This month, Chris Seaton will be giving us a guided tour of concurrent Ruby.

Historically it’s been up to languages other than Ruby to come up with new approaches for handling concurrency, but now that leaves Ruby in a position to provide lots of the good ideas in one place. The Concurrent Ruby gem provides a wide range of tools with many different ways to look at concurrency. Actors, agents, async, futures, dataflow, promises, tasks, channels, thread pools, conditions, barriers, exchangers, semaphores, atomics and more, all in one place.
