How does Doctrine talk to your database? What are Data Mapper, Unit Of Work, and Identity Map? These are the questions I want to answer in this talk. We will look at how Doctrine ORM implements them and what they are there for. Finally we will look at how they compare to Active Record and what the benefits and drawbacks are to help you choose which one fits your needs best.

A good introduction on how doctrine actually works, and some useful tips on reducing the amount of queries to the database.

Good explanation of how Doctrine works under the hood.
Even if this talk was probably more focused on beginners, it was a nice refresh on some concepts. and there were some more advanced tricks also.

Pretty basic, but an interesting talk nevertheless.

Loved it, really adapted to the track (which is supposed to be beginner), and demonstrate concepts people should be used to.
