The Oban Pro

We’ve been using Parker Selbert’s Oban library for years and he even helped us hold it right by improving our open source implementation!

So, Jerod invited him Backstage to discuss the library, how we’re using it, Parker’s plan to make it financially sustainable, his “freedom number” of Oban Pro subscribers, and a bunch of other random stuff along the way. Let’s go!

Reliable and observable job processing in Elixir via Postgres

Oban’s primary goals are reliability, consistency and observability. It is fundamentally different from other background job processing tools because it retains job data for historic metrics and inspection. You can leave your application running indefinitely without worrying about jobs being lost or orphaned due to crashes.
