Designing models in your application can be hard, and they often end up cluttered and dysfunctional. Active Record, for example, defaced a whole generation of models. This workshop gives an in-depth insight into how business logic can be separated from data access, discussing alternative approaches, like the DataMapper pattern, which allows you to build clean and beautiful models again. We will use real-life examples to show how this not only allows to map your models to different relational databases, but also to document databases like CouchDB or MongoDB.

Although sometimes a bit too theoretically it was a nice workshop about models and different approaches to get those "pretty".
