ORM in the PHP World


Comments are closed.

Speaker presented relatively well, but got flustered and tended to ramble at several points. Pace was a bit quick. Examples of specific ORMs had somewhat shallow depth and didn't offer much comparison between them. Coverage of what ORMs are, situations in which they are or aren't appropriate, and available alternatives was good.

I appreciated the considerations presented - not learning another language for SQL, performance, etc - but I didn't feel like there was a conclusion. I didn't get the idea that there was a "So given our requirements, I've found X, Y, and Z to be the best options."

That said, the criticism and comments were all true and raised various points that I hadn't considered previously. I hope some of the ORM frameworks ponder the points.
