Scaling is a perennial problem. One day you are happily serving 10,000 users and suddenly that pesky CNN picks you on you and you have to deal with a million users.

This tutorial will show you how to get started with Gearman, the flexible job queuing system used to power websites such as LiveJournal and Digg. We'll cover common architectures, installation, APIs, and deployment. A few use cases will be described and built, including a Map/Reduce cluster and database-driven URL mining application.
