About the Presentation
While the hype surrounding “NoSQL” (non-relational) database technology has become deafening, there is real substance beneath the often exaggerated claims. But like most things in life, the benefits come at a cost. Developers accustomed to data modeling and application development against relational database technology will need to approach things differently. This presentation highlights the differences between a distributed document-oriented and relational database, the implications for application development and tips and tricks that will ease the transition from relational to NoSQL database technology.
