For the morning of tutorial day, I chose to attend Think like an ant, distribute the workload, given by Helgi Þormar Þorbjörnsson. Helgi is a former Ibuildings colleague and now a bigshot at Orchestra.io. I'm happy to see he's doing well. His presentation started off explaining to us why distributing can be a good thing by pointing out three significant aspects: budget, efficiency and perception.
In the past couple of weeks I had to implement parallel processing with PHP twice. Since it was very effective I thought I’d share it with you all.
