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.

With this book, we explored some ways to create a reliable and fast Laravel application. We used features provided by Laravel Octane with the integration with Swoole and RoadRunner.

We involved some special features of Swoole, especially for caching, concurrent task execution, and scheduled task execution.

We explored some practical examples, and we approached the design of the application differently, delegating tasks to the external executor (via the queue).

We progressively improved the performance of the application by applying multiple techniques.

In this chapter, we explained the architecture, the configuration of the tools used in production (nginx), and the implementation of the scripts to deploy a Laravel Octane application into a production environment.

Hope you enjoyed reading this book.
