The local Oklahoma City PHP User Group is re-starting with the okcCoCo as the new venue. The new meetings will be on the second Tuesday of each month, starting with Tuesday, June 09, 2009 at 6:30pm as the first official meeting. Visit the official OKC PHP User Group website to register for meeting reminders and to connect with other local PHP developers.
I will be presenting my talk on Building a Data Mapper with PHP5 and the Standard PHP Library , followed by a discussion on ORMs and whatever else comes up. The presentation will cover all the thought processes, goals, theories, and actual code that goes into building an ORM (or really any other larger project that requires more advance planning). The project that was the basis of this presentation is phpDataMapper - an open-source PHP5 data mapper ORM layer that I started in the fall of 2008. It now powers the model layer of InvoiceMore, a live web application I launched in March 2009.
This is a presentation I have given before at Tulsa TechFest.
