September 2012 Special Event – MongoDB and PHP with Derick Rethans


Presentation by: Derick Rethans

NOTE DATE & DAY CHANGE – because this is a joint event with the Atlanta MongoDB User Group and not a regular meeting, this event is on the third Friday of September, the 21st.

MongoDB is a scalable, high-performance, open source, document-oriented NoSQL database. It features document-oriented, JSON-based document storage and dynamic schemas providing simplicity, power and flexibility, combined with full indexes similar to what a traditional RDBMS user would expect. MongoDB also provides solid replication & high availability features as well as an auto-sharding system for transparent horizontal scalability.

This talk introduces MongoDB for developers who aren’t familiar with it with a detailed introduction of how to work with MongoDB from PHP. This talk will cover the basics from installing the PHP driver and connecting to MongoDB to creating, inserting, querying for, and updating documents. Schema design will also be covered.

This won’t be a duplication of the previous MongoDB presentation we had earlier this year.
