Some of the things being done with PHP are so off the beaten path that we don't come in contact with it very often. Asynchronous processing is a perfect example of that, and yet it can be so much fun to play with... So let's play with ReactPHP, guided by Cees-Jan Kiewiet!

Talk: Getting started with ReactPHP

ReactPHP brings asynchronous I/O to PHP. Learn how to ReactPHP works by writing a simple toy app with it. I’ll be taking you from the very beginnings of the app and explain step by step how everything works both API wise and internally. Up and until a live interactive demo at the end.
