With every major browser supporting WebSockets, HTML 5 has changed how we handle client to server communications. The high demand for real time client and server messaging has developers flocking away from PHP to languages such as Node.js. In this session we'll explore the libraries and extensions that make Asynchronous PHP possible and analyze the performance differences with Node.js. In addition we'll identify use cases and walk through examples of how Asynchronous PHP can handle everything from WebSockets and Message Queues to MySQL.
