From PHP to NodeJS
Tim will show the process of turning a simple PHP application, into a NodeJS application. And why you'd want to do that.
PHP and PDO
Still using the MySQL functions? Isn't it about time to take a look at PDO? Then this is the meetup for you - Jason will show how to use PDO, and why that's a better than using the native, database specific functions. Not sure if you should use PDO or a DBAL - we'll also explore that topic.
