About the Presentation

The database landscape is evolving as new, scalable data stores emerge. Key value stores, large columnar stores, and document-oriented databases offer a compelling alternative to the traditional relational database. By eschewing traditional assumptions upon which previous databases were built, this new class of non-relational or "NoSQL" solutions gain the ability to scale horizontally. In addition, NoSQL solutions offer interesting alternatives to the traditional relational data model.

This presentation will introduce attendees to the key concepts required to understand and evaluate NoSQL data stores. We'll explore key differences between the various classes of NoSQL solutions and conclude with an in-depth examination of the document-oriented database MongoDB.

This presentation will cover:

  • Origins of the NoSQL movement
  • An overview of the NoSQL Space
  • Philosophy and creation of MongoDB
  • MongoDB system architecture
  • MongoDB usage examples

About MongoDB

MongoDB is an open source, document-oriented database designed with both scalability and developer agility in mind. Instead of storing your data in tables and rows as you would with a relational database, in MongoDB you store JSON-like documents with dynamic schemas. The goal of MongoDB is to bridge the gap between key-value stores (which are fast and scalable) and relational databases (which have rich functionality).

    How does one sign up?

    • Shannon Kempe

      Hi Stephan – Click on the Register Now! button next to the abstract. It will take you to the iLinc registration form. :)

      • Pete

        When I click on the button to register I put in my contact info, submit – then it goes grey and nothing happens. No confirmation.

  • Philip Politowicz

    I want to attend this but I will be traveling (driving, so no ride’n’watch for me) at that time. Will the presentation be available for later viewing? Thanks.

    • Shannon Kempe

      Absolutely. And if you register for the webinar, even if you can’t attend, you will still receive the follow-up email within two US business days with links to the slides, recording and any additional information the speaker shares and the attendees ask for.
