IronMQ is now in General Availability on Heroku so everyone can add it to their Heroku apps. It’s really easy to get started, here’s how:

    heroku addons:add iron_mq

Then in your app configuration:

    @iron_mq = => ENV[‘IRON_MQ_TOKEN’],        ‘project_id’ => ENV[‘IRON_MQ_PROJECT_ID’])

Then we can use it:“Hello World!”)

And somewhere else:

    # do something with it. When you’re done, be sure to delete the message

That should get you started.  A fast, reliable and scalable queue, ready to for you to use in under five minutes!
