About the Presentation
Dave Grijalva, lead engineer & architect, ngmoco:), will discuss the challenges and considerations associated with selecting the right NoSQL solution for technical projects. The session will cover what items need to be considered, how to approach the implementation, and how to pick the best NoSQL technology for the project.Grijalva will do a deep dive into how to look at features, what requirements to consider, and why attendees should predict the amount of traffic the project needs. He’ll also discuss the need to break down read/write and deletion volumes in operations and why you need to consider structured/unstructured data and how often the schema changes.
The session will include a look at the NoSQL technologies ngmoco:) is using, such as MarkLogic, Cassandra, and HBase and Redis, and how the company decided on those technologies.
