PHP has graduated into being an all-around decent general-purpose programming language. But we still use the same old architectural patterns when we write applications. In “Event Architectures”, I walk through why relying on blocking contexts is less efficient and provide examples of how to re-think program flow to achieve far higher throughput and CPU-consumption density than ever before.
