PHP over Erlang: how and why?

Manuel started to develop this crazy idea back in 2013 when he was playing with PEG and Neotoma to parse another crazy idea to build a MySQL server simulator to access to Erlang and gather information (myproto). After the first try, Manuel realised that he can perform something, which with PHP could be impossible to do, like better resources control, real-time coverage or even use websockets. In 2016 Bragful project was created.
