Breaking through MySQL Scalability

Join Tampa Bay PHP for free food, drinks and giveaways as we welcome Akiban Technologies to present on MySQL scalability and noSQL.

 

NoSQL document stores are generally considered at the opposing extreme to relational databases. Schema and SQL are perceived to be at the core of the problem. Akiban Server is an open source database that brings document stores and relational databases together. Developers get powerful document access and schema evolution capabilities alongside surprisingly powerful SQL. In this presentation Ari will cover the architecture and operational ideas that underline the Akiban Server, which is being currently used by a number of large SaaS companies whose applications are written in PHP with really interesting use cases.

Ari is Product Manager and covers markets, projects and product direction. Prior to Akiban, Ari worked as product manager for Quest Software's application and database performance management products. He has a Bachelor's from The Ohio State University.

 

Food & Swag
We'll also be providing pizza and drinks for attendees, as well as Akiban swag (USB drives, coffee mugs, t-shirts..etc). Our meetups are always a lot of fun with lively conversation throughout and we look forward to seeing you there!

    I want to learn how to create a site theme that I can use for several websites that have everything I need to have an affiliate site with a blog, opt ins, ecommerce functionality to sell ebooks, a directory of the different pages which highlight different subjects which each page having the same functionality, and whatever else is needed to create a very interactive site. I'm new to it all, but want to learn very much.

    meetup.com wouldn't be able to do this but we could set something up on another server. What types of things would people like to see these short PHP scripts do? What types of functionality?

    I believe this would be helpful for me as a beginner to see what PHP scripting even looks like. Then I may learn something and post one of my own! That would be great.
