Atlas: A Data Mapper For Your Persistence Model

Paul Jones

Speaker: Paul M. Jones @pmjones

Atlas lets you build an OO model of your SQL tables and relationships. You can use it at the start of your project for basic CRUD operations. As you begin to need simple behaviors in your application, you can add them to the Record and RecordSet persistence model objects. Finally, when the time comes to transition to a rich domain model, you can map the Atlas persistence model objects to your domain Entities and Aggregates.

Transparent Session Management with Sessionz

Eric Mann

Speaker: Eric Mann @ericmann

Sessionz is a new PHP library that adds a custom session manager to your application. On top of this custom manager, you can mix any number of specific handlers into a stack to deal with your data:

  • Write sessions out to the default, filesystem-based session store.
  • Cache session data in-memory for faster reads (and faster performance).
  • Encrypt stored data so it’s protected at rest.
  • Synchronize data to an external storage system so multiple application servers can reference it.
