Overview of this book

Laravel Octane is a very powerful component in the Laravel ecosystem that can help you achieve remarkable app performance. With Laravel Octane, you will find tools (queues, cache, and tables) that facilitate a new asynchronous approach for improving application performance. This book highlights how Laravel Octane works, what steps to take in designing an application from the start, what tools you have at your disposal, and how to set up production environments. It provides complete coverage of the strategies, tools, and best practices to make your apps scalable and performant. This is especially important as optimization is usually the overlooked part in the application development lifecycle. You will explore the asynchronous approach in Laravel and be able to release high-performing applications that have a positive impact on the end-user experience. By the end of this book, you will find yourself designing, developing, and releasing high-performance applications.

Understanding the specific configurations for the production environment is very useful, especially because the configuration of a local environment is typically different from the configuration of the production environment due to the different settings and services available.

In practice, we will cover the following:

  • A typical production architecture
  • How the reference architecture can be optimized
  • Which specific Laravel operations can bring benefits from a performance perspective
  • The deployment...
