Monthly Meeting - July/2014

July's topic will be: Graph Databases! This month, Michelle Sanver will tell us how to use Graph Databases in PHP.

Note: this month pizza will be served at 19:00, before the main talk, instead of after it.

19:00: Welcome Drinks and Pizza
19:30 - 20:30: Graph Databases with PHP
20:30 - 20:45: Raffle 
20:45: Social, drinks

Talk: Graph Databases with PHP
Traditional relational databases — ironically — are not that good at the complex relationships some modern applications need.

Multiple joins and complex sub-queries can gradually take a toll on performance.

Graph Databases, on the other hand, are all about relationships. In this talk we will look at using the popular Neo4j graph database with PHP to build efficient relational data for omnomhub: not your average recipe site.

Speaker: Michelle Sanver 
Michelle Sanver is co-president of PHPWomen, an inclusive & global network providing support within the PHP community. She also works as a software developer at Liip, based in Zürich, Switzerland.

Michelle loves anything community related and is a big advocate of Open Source. She is a code-passionate colourful geek and with more than 10 years of PHP experience she is eager to share her extensive knowledge.

We got some awesome stuff to give away this month, so make sure you attend another awesome meetup!

    Please give me feedback to improve, this is the first time I gave this talk and I'm giving it again at conferences this year, so I *REALLY* would like tips on what to change! Thank you and I'm glad you liked it! :)

    Hey guys,

    Please note that this month we're trying out serving pizza before the talk instead of after it.

    Relationship consuling for developers. I really like the simple way how Neo4j handles relationships.

    Looking forward to it! Graph databases are one of the lesser exposed datastorage systems in PHP land! Nice!
