Websockets and event-driven programming with ReactPHP


Comments are closed.

The content was interesting, but it was hard to follow at times.

A lot of good information on event driven programming based around promises, and reactphp.

It felt like Steve struggled at times with what to say next.

Took this session and asynchronous yesterday. I found Steve's overall presentation easier to follow and had solid examples.

The delivery was a little scattered and a little difficult to follow but I did like the fact that you covered the basics such as Promises and multiplexing.

The examples shown for promises weren't exactly clear what library or concept you were using however - this could be helpful to the attendees. In addition it was a little difficult to determine what examples you were showing ReactPHP, Icicle etc. Since it was labeled a ReactPHP framework I would have liked to have seen all the examples focused on that great, amazing and fantastic library (obvious bias =)).

There was also some information wasn't accurate - I cannot remember the exact specifics but my ears did perk a few times. One example I recall was some mention of problems with using MySQL in an asynchronous fashion. I am using MySQL asynchronously with ReactPHP with tremendous success - there are libraries out there.

I would be happy to discuss it further, feel free to track me down.

Cy and Steve - you're right, I also felt like it was a tad disjointed. It didn't help that I've had a headache today. :)

I hadn't seen the MySQL drivers for ReactPHP, I'll have to check those out. Thanks for letting me know! When I started working with ReactPHP, they didn't exist, and they aren't on the main ReactPHP web page.

Interesting and good introduction. Had hard following/understanding some parts but overall good.
Might remember wrong about this but the code on github could have comments explaining the code.

Interesting, slightly hard to follow. I feel websockets weren't given as much time as the title might have suggested

I haven’t worked with websockets before, it was interesting to see them in action with php

I was hoping for more information about websockets, but this part of the session wasn't given enough attention.
