Considerations for using NoSQL technology on your next IT project - Presented by Akmal B. Chaudhri

Over the past few years, we have seen the emergence and growth of NoSQL technology. This has attracted interest from organizations looking to solve new business problems. There are also examples of how this technology has been used to bring practical and commercial benefits to some organizations. However, since it is still an emerging technology, careful consideration is required in finding the relevant developer skills and choosing the right product. This presentation will discuss these issues in greater detail. In particular, it will focus on some of the leading NoSQL products and will discuss their architectures and suitability for different problems. Short demonstrations, using Java, with several leading NoSQL products are planned to give the audience a feel for the practical aspects of such products.

    Let Akmal or myself know if you have any problems.

    Thanks,

    I sent a link to the slides and video to Anji. In the meantime, the slides are available here: https://speakerdeck.com/abchaudhri/considerations-for-using-nosql-technology-on-your-next-it-project-1

    Hi everyone, Aiming to start the lightning talks slightly earlier than advertised - aiming to start at 18:30 sharp. Please keep this in mind for arriving so that you leave yourself plenty of time.

    Appreciate that, thanks everyone! Have a great evening,

    Anj

      Just about now! Sorry I couldn't make it along tonight Ioannis and all! I hope you enjoy it, looking forward to reading the comments later

      May 7, 2013

    • Akmal C.

      Barry, your team did a great job. Thank you.

  • Ioannis M.

    Awesome talk, really needed a bit more than an hour :-)

    • Dimitar C.

      Great idea. I would personally attend both. Thanks for the great talk last night.

      1 · May 8, 2013

    • Akmal C.

      You are welcome Dimitar. Thank you for attending. I liked the lightning talks too -- quite varied.

  • Antonio Di F.

    Awesome talks, thank you all very much!

    May 7, 2013

    • Antonio Di F.

      Thank YOU Akmal for the talk :-)
      You mentioned a few times some links at the end of your slide deck, however I could not catch them at the end of the talk. Are you going to share your slides somewhere?
      Also, I have got a few questions around NoSQL, but not sure this is an appropriate forum. Any place where I can forward them?

      May 8, 2013

    • Akmal C.

      Antonio, I will make sure the slides are made available to LJC. For questions, there is Quora.com where there is a section on NoSQL. Also, there is a mailing list: http://groups.google....­

    Great talk Akmal, and it was nice to see some thought given to the perspective of why developers should be interested in addition to the actual technical details. These motivations can be easy to skip over, but your graphs definitely provided food for thought.

    I'm personally a bit more optimistic about polyglot persistence than I think you might be (although happy to be corrected :) ), I'm using this approach on my current project with good results so far. We're being careful to provide governance (to prevent the loose cannon issue you mentioned), but we're seeing an increase in productivity after the initial learning curve, as we're no longer trying to fiddle all data models into a relational DB. We've also reduced the time spent tuning our ORM framework to get reasonable performance.

    Thanks again, and I'm looking forward to your next talk. Have you given any thought to reviewing polyglot programming? I think your analytical approach would work very well here :)

    • Akmal C.

      Many thanks Daniel. I am always looking for good examples and thank you for confirming that Polyglot persistence is working well for you. It is on my list of things to look at in more detail.
