TaskIt: a Task Frameworks

Santiago Bragagnolo designed a task frameworks. Expressing and managing concurrent computations is indeed a concern of importance to develop applications that scale. A web application may want to use different processes for each of its incoming requests. Or maybe it wants to use a “thread pool” in some cases. In other case, our desktop application may want to send computations to a worker to not block the UI thread.

TaskIT is a library that eases the usage of processes in Pharo. It provides abstractions to schedule and/or parallelize of the execution of pieces of code. In this chapter we will explore these abstractions, guided by examples and code snippets.

With Guillermo Polito they are writing a nice chapter on a frameworks to manage tasks in Pharo.
