We talk with Parker Selbert, the creator of the job processing library Oban. He shares the benefits of using Postgres as the data store over more common choices like Redis. Oban also offers a paid “pro” level and Parker explains how a paid feature set is provided for the OpenSource library. He helps us understand the differences between pro and free as well. We talk about how the BEAM’s concurrency and processes enable powerful features in a job processing library that you won’t easily find in alternatives. He also shares a glimpse of what’s coming in the future for the library and more!
