PHPNW April Meetup - Derick Rethans on MongoDB Schemas
March 22, 2012 @ 10:08:35

The PHP North West user group has announced their latest meetup happening April 3rd at 7pm in Manchester. Derick Rethans will be speaking about designing MongoDB schemas.

One of the challenges that comes with moving to MongoDB is figuring how to best model your data. While most developers have internalized the rules of thumb for designing schemas for RDBMSs, these rules don't always apply to MongoDB. The simple fact that documents can represent rich, schema-free data structures means that we have a lot of viable alternatives to the standard, normalized, relational model. Not only that, MongoDB has several unique features, such as atomic updates and indexed array keys, that greatly influence the kinds of schemas that make sense.

For more information, check out their event page, complete with details about the venue and maps to the location.

The PHP Community Confernece (Nashville, TN)
January 13, 2011 @ 15:28:46

An announcement has been made about an new entry into the PHP community world - the PHP Community Conference happening in Nashville, TN (April 21st and 22nd):

The PHP Community Conference is all about you! Come on out to Nashville for a different kind of conference this spring. We're going to hear from community members about projects they're working on and how they were inspired. It's going to be a fun, laid-back event where you and the people you'll meet can collaborate to build some awesome applications of your own with PHP. Ticket sales will begin on February 3, 2011.

Their Call for Papers is already open and will stay open until January 31st - less than 20 days away! They're looking for topics that focus less of the technical how-to you might find at other conferences and more on the "real world" happenings and projects the PHP community is working on. Speakers will have airfare and hotel costs paid for. To submit a proposal, send it in an email over to proposals@phpcon.org today!
