PHP Roundtable:
044: Asynchronous PHP
Apr 27, 2016 @ 09:23:05

The PHP Roundtable, with host and PHP community member Sammy K Powers, has posted a new episode featuring a discussion about Asynchronous PHP. In this show Sammy is joined by guests Christopher Pitt, Sara Golemon and Aaron Piotrowski.

Async? Isn't that like AJAX in Javascript or something? Most PHP developers encounter asynchronous code for the first time in Javascript, but not many are aware that PHP can do async too. We discuss asynchronous programming in PHP and how we might be able to implement it in our own projects using various libraries. We also take a look at how async features could be added to PHP core to support async natively.

There's plenty of detail in the show notes for this episode covering all of the topics mentioned and links to some other resources you can use to find out more about asynchronous development in PHP. You can listen/watch this latest episode either through the in-page video player or directly on YouTube.
