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 have seen how combining the caching mechanism, routing optimization, an asynchronous approach, and query optimization can benefit information retrieval. The caching mechanism combined with the asynchronous approach helps us reduce the data retrieval response time for every request (even if the cache is outdated). The query optimization reduces the time spent retrieving fresh data to fill a cache. The routing optimization helps us to save more milliseconds when the frameworks resolve the routes, reducing response time.

In the next chapter, we will try to address situations where we need to perform a time-consuming task – that is, operations that take some time to complete but where we cannot use caching mechanisms.

Caching mechanisms can be beneficial when retrieving information. On the other hand, if we need to perform a task such as writing, sending, or transforming data, we most likely will need to use some other tool. In the next chapter...
