Kevin Schroeder's Blog: Could your PHP application benefit from asynchronous computing?

Kevin Schroeder has been conducting an informal poll about asynchronous computing in PHP applications and has posted some of the results (as well as the poll for those that didn't get their votes in) to his blog today.

Tis the season for Zendcon. I am going to be giving a talk at Zendcon called "Do You Queue". It will be about doing asynchronous computing in PHP. In order for me to gather some data I posted a twitpoll poll. The response has been pretty good. However, there have also been several misunderstandings as well.

He points out a few comments on the poll that talk about asynchronous processing being included in the language and dismiss it as something that other technology already does. He agrees that threads shouldn't be in PHP because it would break on of PHP's strongest features - the Shared Nothing architecture. Want to share your opinion? Vote on the poll and be heard!
