Distributed task queue.

Our review

What we like

Build tasks and workflows in code (currently Python, Go, TS). Each stage of a workflow is independent and can be run durably and retried without losing progress so far. Run your own workers so you control underlying resources, location, and data privacy. Manage concurrency and rate limiting of steps to control resource consumption. Cloud service, but you can also run the control plane yourself.

What we don't like

Is Postgres appropriate for a distributed task queue? Seems to be, and it’s likely already part of your stack (or you’re using a managed service).
