Friday 29th September, AM Session (09:30 - 13:00)
PHP was never designed for long running processes and this causes problems for the modern world of programming where developers want to consume streams of data in realtime. HTTP/2 solves some problems with Server-Sent Events but it still does not solve the problem of efficient bidirectional communication. In this tutorial you will learn about Event-Driven Programming and how to create the foundations of a WebSocket application with React. Then we will move onto more advanced concepts such as removing blocking code with AMQP leading to the creation of a scalable and distributed WebSocket architecture built with PHP and associated technologies.
