TIL beanstalkd

Beanstalk is a simple, fast work queue.

Its interface is generic, but was originally designed for reducing the latency of page views in high-volume web applications by running time-consuming tasks asynchronously.

Apparently it’s been around forever. And I called myself a messaging nerd. Shame.
