Scaling Ruby with Actors, or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Threads

A session at RubyConf 2011

Saturday 1st October, 2011

10:25am to 11:15am (CST)

The last two years have been a personal tour of EventMachine, Fibers and Threads for me as I've toured the ecosystem looking for a developer-friendly, efficient solution for scaling Ruby. Historically Threads have performed poorly in Ruby but guess what? - recent events may change your mind. Now would be a good time to give them a second chance.
