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.

Additionally, we will look at other data storage systems such as memcache, and nosql databases.
