Asynchronous PHP | Florian Engelhardt

Key takeaways
  • Asynchronous code does not guarantee execution order.
  • Asynchronous PHP is a paradigm shift in an environment that we’re already familiar with.
  • ReactPHP is a library that implements the reactor pattern and provides an event loop.
  • Deferreds and promises represent computations and their results.
  • RabbitMQ is a message broker that can be used to send messages between applications.
  • You can use ReactPHP to consume messages from RabbitMQ in an asynchronous way.
  • Asynchronous development can help improve the performance of your application by allowing it to handle multiple requests concurrently.
  • It’s important to understand the limitations of asynchronous programming and to use it appropriately.
  • There are a number of resources available to help you learn more about asynchronous PHP, including the ReactPHP documentation and the PHP Async Community.
