For this month's talk we're very proud to anounce Ross Tuck, who will be educating us about "Models and Service layers". I took a look at his slides on slideshare, and while I can't figure out what the story is behind most of them - they're hilarious. Also: there's 258 of them. *ouch!*

Talk: Models and Service Layers by Ross Tuck
Models, sure. That’s all part of MVC. Those are the objects that hold your business logic. Except…do they really? In PHP, the norm is to have an anemic domain model. Even if you want to move away from that (whatever it is), how do you do it?
In this talk, we’ll look at different schools of thought for managing your code’s truly important parts and the impact on related areas like testing or form libraries. From plain models to service layers, DDD to CQRS, we’ll try to apply them to an average application using PHP libraries and see where they stand up or fall down.
There’s no magic elixar for designing good models but sometimes all you need is a little iron in your diet.
About Ross Tuck (as taken from his website):
In addition to coding, I also speak at conferences and write articles. My hobbies are reading and hats.”
If you aren’t impressed by that, we can add to it his more than impressive list of speaking experience on joind.in!
