Simplify the service-stack: Networking with Swoole by Matthew Hill w/ Free BBQ
Simplify the service-stack: Networking with Swoole by Matthew Hill We love PHP: it is fast, (relatively) lean, and includes the features we know and love! It is a strong competitor even in the world of micro-services. The one drawback to selecting PHP as your platform of choice is the webserver lurking in the shadows: nginx, apache2, and other "big brothers" that represent an onerous "middle-man" to complicate your stack and occupy your time. Enter Swoole, a PHP-extension that provides async, multi-threaded I/O modules. You could write your own server, that performs 4 times faster than nginx+fpm. Or an asynchronous database transaction. Or a chat client. Find out why PHP+async is a dream for R&D, and learn to love PHP all over again! Speaker Bio Matt has been playing with PHP professionally for 12 years. A rambling vagrant who always enjoys playing with new, shiny technology, he has forgotten more frameworks than he remembers. He enjoys Marvel movies, large cauldrons of melted cheese, and long-winded rants against pop culture.
