I Promise() to Teach You Asynchronous PHP


Comments are closed.

Excellent talk on the benefits and general process of moving from imperative to concurrent and parallel processing, using a simple (yet large-ish) data set. I know from experience that Eric knows a thing or two about asynchronous PHP, and I know it helped clear up a lot of areas that I wasn't particularly clear on before seeing the talk.

Eric had flash drives available with the necessary components to set up (so we didn't tank the conference wifi), but making the information available over the wire *ahead* of the conference would have eased setup time (plus mitigated some of my "plugging in a foreign flash drive" anxiety).

Best live demo I've seen in a convention. Easy to setup stack and I loved being able to solve the problems promises along with the speaker. It's amazing how fast and easy it is to run asynch PHP.

Eric really did an incredible job. Really impressed.

Excellent! Complete with real world code examples that we could refactor and run in our local environments. Very helpful. I left this talk thinking of how I will apply this knowledge to several projects that could greatly benefit from it.

This was the hands on introduction to async php that I've really been wanting. Eric did a great job, and the examples were easy to follow, and addressed a lot of FUD around async. It would have been nice to have access to the vagrant box ahead of time -- the pre-conference email said we needed to provide our own environment with PHP7 compiled with zts and pthreads, and that turned out to be unnecessary.
