Generators, which have been around since PHP 5.5 and got a lot better with PHP 7, take a lot of the angst out of asynchronous programming in PHP. In this talk I'll explain the basic concepts that you'll need to grok generators, then apply our new-found knowledge to turn an I/O-bottlenecked web app into a concurrent, performant one via the AMPHP family of libraries.

An interesting talk at the beginning but I have to admit the pace wasn't fast enough to keep my mind focused on the content. Although that may have been last night catching up with me?

Nice to see docker being used though!

I really enjoyed it and learned a ton!

A good introduction to generators, however, the talk did at times feel disjointed and did not flow. Certainly a subject that i need to further investigate within PHP

A solid talk full of useful information. The demos were a bit 'hesitant' with the requirement to switch containers and a couple of other issues, which is the only thing stopping me from giving this 5 stars. Other than that it was a great talk.
