Talk: Niels Hageman - Distributed job scheduling

This is going to be an interesting talk by Paylogic's Niels Hageman. He has written a system to manage and reliably schedule jobs in a distributed way in a cluster of servers. It is called Sisyphus and is definitely worth checking out if cronjobs don't cut it for you anymore. Sisyphus has proven itself in Paylogic's high demanding production environment and deserves some more attention.
