Event Driven Architecture

Have you ever wondered what ReactPHP meant by "non blocking I/O"? Or why would being "event-driven" allow nginx to be more efficient than Apache? If you find it easier to understand abstract concepts like these by implementing them, then you're in luck because in this talk we'll create a simple HTTP server, then develop an event loop and finally create a simple Promise class. Once we're done, we'll have all the tools at our disposal to make our PHP applications as performant as NodeJs ones!

Speaker: Loïc Faugeron

Loïc Faugeron is a lead developer at Constant Commerce, where he develops APIs using Symfony3, PHP7 and phpspec. These days he's rambling about TDD, CQRS / ES and MonoRepos on his blog.
