The Database Access rEvolution (with @miljar)

In PHP, we have different tools at our disposition to talk to a database. There are also different ways of working with the data coming from that database. Many people take working with a database abstraction layer or ORM for granted. But how do these modern tools work? Why are we doing things the way we are doing them now? By taking back a step and looking at each itteration in the evolution of working with databases in PHP applications, we will try to explain the principles on which our current tools are built.
