Task Queue

Description

Task queues manage background work asynchronously outside of a user request. With regard to web development, they are used to process tasks outside the typical request/response cycle. They are quite popular in microservice architectures for inter-microservice communication. Celery and RQ are the two most popular Python-based task queues.

The tutorials and articles on TestDriven focus on setting up and configuring task queues to work with Docker and various Python web Frameworks like Django and Flask.
