Working with streams sounds scary and complicated but we’ll show you how to leverage streams to process large data imports without having to sell your house to buy RAM. Streams are a way to generalize data for easier processing in a linear way including the ability to seek around the stream. We’ll cover our own tips and tricks we’ve learned along the way to help you dive deep into processing streams.
Streams have been in PHP since back in the 4.x days however we continually see developers trying to iterate on huge data sets and often run out of memory. We’ll show you a better solution instead of “ ini_set(‘memory_limit’,’16GB’);”
