Food Sponsored by: Thompson Technologies (http://www.thompsontechnologies.com/)
Gearman is a simple and robust tool for distributing asynchronous or offline work across a large number of worker boxes. Gearman will let you run a simple asynchronous task in only a few lines of code (and in many languages).
This talk will focus on what Gearman is, some use cases for it, and how you can quickly start using it with PHP.
