PHP UK 2010: RDBMS in the social networks age

Yesterday I attended the PHP UK Conference 2010 in London. The organisers did a great job and everything went smooth. Thanks to everyone who was involved!
The quality of the talks was quite good, and meeting other people is always a pleasure.

RDBMS in the social networks age - Slides

My talk (RDBMS in the social networks age) was in the first slot after the keynote, so I could get over with it soon and enjoy the rest of the conference :-)
According to the comments and the tweets, it was very well received. I was a bit worried at first because the topic was highly technical and not easy to follow, but the audience was kind enough to bear with me :-)
You can find the slides at my talks page or on SlideShare. If you attended, please leave your comments on!

Very nice examples. Recursive and windowing queries can really be mind-bending.

I thought I might be out of my depth with your talk but I understood a lot of the concepts you showed - a nice talk, well delivered

Thanks for the presentation. Your talk on "RDBMS in the social networks age" was really interesting!
