Episode 163 of Thinking Elixir. If you need background jobs or scheduled tasks in your Elixir project, you’ve probably already heard of Oban. We talk with Parker Selbert, the creator and maintainer of Oban, to learn more about the project and the additional paid features in Oban Web and Oban Pro. Parker explains more of the origins, why he architected the way it is, and how the paid extensions work. We also get some insights into companies using Oban and the kind of scale people reach.
