This session will try to cover from top to bottom an unsung hero of Drupal 7, Queue API.
http://api.drupal.org/api/drupal/modules%21system%21system.queue.inc/7

In this session we'll go over what Drupal's Queue API (and batch) with various examples to answer basic questions:
What is a Queue?
How do I use it?
Why do i want one?

We'll do some live demonstrations of the Queue API and talk about the advantages of using the Queue API versus looping everything over a single request. This session will be purely focused on backend development and solving problems that deal with having to do large amounts of work which can be put off till later.
