Object-Oriented Programming in PHP has lead to increased demand for object-relational mapping tools (ORM) to interact with databases. For the second major version of Doctrine we focused on building a fast and extendable ORM build on top of a flexible database-access layer (DBAL). This talk introduces the DBAL and ORM components of Doctrine 2. In the first part of the talk I will show that you can use the DBAL without the ORM and why you should do this instead of using just PDO or mysqli. In the second part I will introduce the ORM and its basic features.
