    Awesome job! I've been wanting to dig more into delayed_job and this was great. And anyone that adds a Finding Forrester reference to a screencast is okay in my book.

    Thanks, but since Sidekiq, I think Delayed_job is a little outdated

    @fooheyy Sidekiq is more similar to Resque than DelayedJob. I would say Resque vs DelayedJob is just as applicable to Sidekiq vs DelayedJob.

    So, I wouldn't say Sidekiq makes DelayedJob outdated, but you could very well make the argument that Sidekiq makes Resque outdated.

    Thanks for the screencast, I was left wondering though how you'd normally go about running the jobs - I mean what's the point in setting a job to run one minute from now if you go and do it manually anyway?

    Hi Louis! For the screencast, I fired off rake jobs:work manually, but in a real situation, you could fire off that rake task using an automated script, or if you're using Heroku, you could use a service like Heroku Scheduler to run it.

About This Screencast

This introductory screencast describes how to use the Delayed Job gem for executing long-running tasks in the background of a Rails application. Starting with building a simple app that sends a mailer, we demonstrate sending the mailer manually, and then we refactor it to be fired off as a delayed job.
