ReactPHP for Beginners

About the Book

The main purpose of this book is to get you started with developing asynchronous applications in PHP. I will show you that PHP is much more than run the script, execute some code and die. You will be amazed by the way your familiar PHP language can be used! The asynchronous model will definitely expand the way you think about PHP.

In fact, there is no need to learn a new language when you need to write some asynchronous stuff just because someone blames PHP that it is not a right tool. You can create asynchronous applications in PHP and this book will show you how.

It will be a step by step guide to building an asynchronous PHP application.
