About the Book

Learn how to use RabbitMQ to seperate back end processing from user facing UI's, react to incoming events from remote 3rd party systems & increase system performance by splitting individual steps in a sequence into individual processes with PHP. 

The book starts with a very simple publisher-subscriber queue and goes on to describe techniques for handling large volumes of messages using multiple consumers, running those processes in the background and how to start and stop them gracefully.

You'll learn all about the different types of exhanges the problems they are good at solving as well as examples of real world problems solved using RabbitMQ & PHP.
