Services, Mappers, Models: Enterprise Thinking

This October 9th, MKEPUG’s founder Aaron Saray will serve up an enterprise-grade presentation for PHP developers! In his own words...

Services, Mappers, Models: Enterprise Thinking

One of the greatest failures PHP has is not that it is a bad language, but that it isn't marketed as a good language.  Since it's so easy to do it bad, a lot of people do just that.  However, there is hope.  Businesses ARE using PHP for Enterprise!  You just need to apply a solid foundation to the language to get to that Enterprise level.

With our mind on the Enterprise sphere, it's time to take PHP programming to a more advanced level.  To get the most out of this talk, you should already be familiar with object oriented programming concepts in PHP.  To begin with, I'll talk about the need for a service layer, data mappers, and business object models.  Then I'll demonstrate examples of how to do it right.  As an added bonus, I'm not going to just tell you why it's best practice and a "good idea" - I'm going to SHOW you.  This might be the first time in your life that you realize that changes in architecture, supporting infrastructure, and business requirements don't have to be as painful as you once thought!

    Once again, Aaron delivers. Definitely a good topic I wish all new PHP developers could be exposed to early on in their careers.
