ZendCon 2010 Podcast – A New Approach To Object Persistence In PHP

Speaker

Stefan Priebsch

Abstract

The object-relational impedance mismatch makes persisting PHP objects in a relational database a daunting task. How about these new schemaless NoSQL databases? We will have a look at the problems involved with persisting PHP objects, and introduce design patterns that help solving these problems. Putting the patterns to good use, we will build a working PHP object persistence solution for MongoDB.

Podcasts are a-coming

Just a real quick note. I received the podcasts from ZendCon 2010 back in December and opened up a contest to let people choose which order they wanted to hear the sessions in. The order is in and I have already started posting them, starting with Dependency Injection. I would have done the Unit Testing after ZF 1.8 but Michelangelo is doing a webinar with us on the 19th, so I will post the recording of his ZendCon session afterwards.
