PHP London is a volunteer organised community group to promote knowledge sharing and best practice amongst PHP developers, web development and business professionals in London. Our regular monthly meeting is on the first Thursday of every month where PHP developers can get together for drinks, food, networking and hear a talk from other members of the group. In order to attend all you need is an interest in PHP.
Drinks at the beginning of the evening are generously provided by DataSift.

CQRS & Event Sourcing - The coolest design patterns you probably shouldn't be using
This talk will take you through the Event Sourcing design pattern, then go through how you'd implement it. From there we'll move on to CQRS, starting with what it is, then moving onto why it works well with event sourcing and how you'd implement it. Finally we'll wrap up with why it's probably not appropriate for most projects, and give some examples where it is appropriate.
