PHP Belfast - April Meetup


IN honour of Belfast Big Data week, we're rapidly trying to pull together An introduction to working with "Big Data" or graph databases with PHP.

This intro level talk will show you how to install the Neo4J graph database. To create and search nodes.

NB - This talk is yet to be confirmed.

Should this talk not proceed, the slot will be filled with extra lightning speakers.


Following on from the success of last months lightning talks, we will have a new set of 4 short talks this month.

What is a lightning talk?

Well, did you fix a problem recently? did you fix a bug, find a new (to you) useful library on github, maybe you discovered a cool plugin that saved you 2 days of development.... Thing is - everybody knows something, everybody can share something. It is the collective sharing that makes a community stronger. Lightning talks are the perfect vehicle for sharing those little gems.

This month, our lightning sessions include:-

Value Objects - Darren Craig (Minus40)
Speed v Scale - Ryan Kilfedder (Learning Pool)
Traits - Andy Graham (31 Interactive)
Clockwork - David Frame (31 Interactive)


To find us, head in the main entrance to the University of Ulster (Belfast Campus) on York Street. More directions can be found at:

Once inside someone you’re there for PHPBelfast, they’ll give you access and directions to the room. You need to go up to floor C in the lift, turn left out of the lift, 82C02 is the first door on the right.
