Heard about this ‘NoSQL’ thing but aren’t really sure what it means, and worse, you’re getting conflicting answers? If you’re a developer who’s been spending all of his professional data storage days in the relational world, hearing about databases that are ‘schemaless’ and ‘dynamic’ and ‘nonrelational’ may seem like a step backwards, leaving you to wonder what the big deal is. In this talk, we’ll go over a bunch of the different NoSQLs, why they’re different from the RDBMS, and more importantly, what they’re good for and why you should spend (a little) time learning how to use and develop to them.
