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.

In this chapter, we explored the installation and configuration of Laravel Octane with the RoadRunner application server. We took a look at the benefit we get from the usage of RoadRunner and how to enable advanced features such as the HTTPS protocol.

In the next chapter, we will see how to do the same things with Swoole. We will see the additional features Swoole has, compared with RoadRunner, and in Chapter 4, Building a Laravel Octane Application, we will start to look at the code for the web application using the Octane service, which is now up and running.
