[php[tek] 2014] Introduction To Databases (Part 1: MySQL & PDO)

[php[tek] 2014] Introduction To Databases (Part 1: MySQL & PDO)

This talk will cover the basics necessary to help you decide what data to store, where, and how.

We will cover PDO — PHP’s Data Object extension, which allows you to talk to a variety of databases, including MySQL.

You will learn how to CRUD — Create, Retrieve, Update and Delete data, database schema, and when to use indexes.

This talk assumes zero knowledge of databases and SQL, and will take you from zero to JOINs and Foreign Key constraints in no time with MySQL.
