Hello Symfony Community,

We're kicking off the new year with a spectacular line up and are pretty excited to welcome some big names of Symfony's ecosystem in Berlin.
Andreas Braun, part of the Doctrine Project and MongoDB, and Symfony's Nicolas Grekas will join us. Thanks to Lidl's Schwarz IT we're back at the awesome Clinker Lounge for the third time.

Dropping ACID: Schema design for e-commerce
Andreas Braun

When designing a schema for e-commerce applications, we have to keep certain things in mind: data retention rules require duplicating large chunks of data, leading to complex schemas in any relational database. Modern database systems can help us solve this problem, but we seldom use their features when designing schemas. In this talk, we will take a look at some strategies on how to design more efficient schemas for certain database systems, and how to effectively drop ACID at work.

Nicolas Grekas

Nicolas works on Symfony, with two sides to his contributions. On the open-source side, he's been submitting new features and bug fixes almost daily for 5 years. He puts a lot of efforts on making Symfony fast, easy to use and well designed, all at the same time. On the business side, he leads the ambition to create a sustainable company supporting and supported directly by the Symfony ecosystem. He previously worked as CTO for, the PHP profiler that we were all missing and you should definitively try.


Q&A with Nicolas, Andreas and Nils

With Nicolas Grekas, Andreas Braun and Nils Adermann we are happy to host a Q&A session with representatives of Symfony, Doctrine and Composer. All three projects are critical for a lot of companies and businesses while being Open Source Software.
You are invited to bring your questions about those projects and we're looking forward to all discussions.
