Speaking at Nomad PHP (EU)

Hot on the heels of my ZendCon EU Keynote announcement yesterday, I wanted to invite everybody to sign up for Nomad PHP EU. Nomad PHP is an online PHP User Group for people who don’t have a local user group, or who just want to see more quality talks!

For those of you in Europe, or who want to watch the talks during work hours with your team, there is now Nomad EU. Nomad PHP EU meetings take place at 20:00 CET, which is 2pm EST, or 11am PST.

I will be presenting Introduction to Databases on November 14th.

This talk will cover the basics necessary to help you decide what data to store, where, and how.

We will cover PDO — PHP’s Data Object extension, which allows you to talk to a variety of databases, including MySQL.

You will learn how to CRUD — Create, Retrieve, Update and Delete data, database schema, and when to use indexes.

Additionally, we will look at other data storage systems such as memcache, and nosql databases.

I originally gave this talk at Lonestar PHP 2013 back in June and it was my favorite talk I have given to date — if you are new to databases, want to learn JOINs and Foreign Keys, or just want to brush up on your fundamental MySQL skills, this talk will have something for you!

      The talk I gave at Lonestar was written around a series of in-person exercises, which obviously don’t translate to Nomads online format, so while the slides are available, they’re not necessarily useful (and there isn’t a video).

      I’m not sure what you mean by “Did not know nomad conference would work like that.” — like what?

        i mean work like an online conference, kind of like the master series Cal Evans also organize. It is also his business so it makes more sense now.

        slides are available -> where? url? thanks man! I see you are also from florida, are you going to be in the sunshinephp this coming year?

        Lord willing i will be there. Encouragements,
