Concurrent Podcast and Producer/Consumer approaches

As usual, I’ve been blogging over on the MindTouch Developer blog, and since the topics i post about over there have a pretty strong overlap with what I’d post here, I figured i might as well start cross-posting about it here.

Aside from various technical posts, Steve Bjork and I have started recording a Podcast about concurrent programming. It’s currently 2 episodes strong, with a third one coming soon. Information on past and future posts can always be found here.

Today’s post on the MindTouch dev blog is about the producer/consumer pattern and how i moved from using dedicated workers with a blocking queue to using Dream’s new ElasticThreaPool to dispatch work.
