There are things you don't want to, or can't do, inside a web request. It could be a task that needs to be retired if it fails, maybe one that takes a significantly long time to process, or multiple jobs that need to be processed over time. Whether you're sending an email, processing a video, or consuming Twitter's streaming API, you should be using a separate process, and probably a daemon. In this hands-on workshop, you'll learn how to stop abusing cron, and easily daemonize a PHP script that responds responsibly to process signals.

Great speaker, obviously very knowledgeable. Had a few snafus he resolved wicked quick - so it didn't detract at all.
Nice example code and useful information on setting up and getting daemons running.
This will great information to bring back and put to work with my team, thank you for the clear and easily understandable demos!
