Good ol' SQL Server--it's been a great place for your grandpappy to store data, and for your pappy to store data, too. But the data coming into applications and data centers isn't the same data as it was even just a few years ago, and trying to store it all into SQL Server is starting to run into problems.

In this workshop, we'll spend a day with a couple of the more popular NoSQL systems, learning how to integrate them into a .NET workflow: how to install, store and retrieve data, what the query mechanisms are like, and most importantly, when and where and why a development effort would think about using an alternative data storage system instead of good 'ol SQL Server.

You will learn:

  • Principles behind "NoSQL" databases
  • When a "NoSQL" system might be a better fit
  • Get some practice working with a few "NoSQL" systems
