The PHP-centric magazine php[architect] has released their latest edition, the February 2014 issue "Databases".
Before I got into coding I had no concept of what a database was, except that it was a place to store "data." After reading about "tables" and "relations" I could visualize it better. Later, after working with databases for a few years, I can totally grok it. For years, relational databases were king. Now, it seems that non - relational databases are all the rage. Really, though, it's like any other tool - you pick the one that suits the situation best.
In this month's edition articles include:
- SQL to NoSQL Migration
- I18n by Translation Proxy
- The Confident Coder: Attention to Detail
- Laravel Tips: Rapid Coding and Prototyping Through Generators
...and of course editorials from staff members Eli White and Beth Long Tucker. You can pick up a single copy (in PDF or print) of this issue from the php[architect] site or grab a full year's subscription.
