Asynchronous web application development allows teams to offload slow processes in order to provide snappy responses to clients. But implementing asynchronous processes in PHP applications can be complicated — especially when starting from scratch.

But with networking frameworks like Swoole and middleware like Mezzio (formerly Expressive), developers can make asynchronous programming less complicated and more achievable.

Leveraging PHP Middleware for Asynchronous Programming

In this webinar, Matthew Weier O’Phinney, Product Manager and Principal Engineer at Zend by Perforce, and Development Lead for the Laminas Project, shows how PHP developers can leverage Swoole and Mezzio to apply asynchronous programming for improved scalability and performance in PHP applications — particularly when building highly-scalable APIs.

Attend This Webinar to Learn:

  • The benefits of asynchronous programming
  • How the Swoole extension works
  • How to integrate a PSR-15 app into Swoole
  • How developers can use Mezzio with Swoole
  • Potential pitfalls when adopting middleware
