180 minutes


In a world, full of Micro-Services, distributing tasks is a constant challenge, and there's only one tool that can rule them all.

In this workshop, we'll introduce Celery - a tool for distributing tasks in an easy, fast, and flexible manner, and take you from zero to hero!

  • We're going to understand why we need a distributed task system, and why to choose Celery.
  • We'll write our first Celery task.
  • Understand how to configure and run Celery.
  • Familiarize ourselves with Celery's fundamental concepts.
  • Dive into celery customizable options.
  • Finally, we'll see a real-life example of how we used Celery in our production system and how we customized it to fit our needs, and discuss how you can do the same.
