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.

Technical requirements

We start with the assumption that the reader has a production environment available. Typically, this kind of environment can be on a virtual machine, such as one (or more) Amazon EC2 instances, or an environment provided by cloud PaaS solutions, such as, or by cloud servers/service providers, such as Digital Ocean or Vultr.

We will not address the specific installation of these environments; however, we will give indications of a typical architecture that combines the use of a web server such as nginx on one (or more) GNU/Linux-type virtual machines.
