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. 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.
