Hi guys, this week we are focusing on a couple of non relational persistence technologies that are available to us from the .NET platform. We will have two 45(ish) minute talks from two great presenters. Should be very interesting!

Thinking in a document centric world with RavenDB - Nick Josevski

Nick Josevski will introduce some Document-Oriented Database concepts and give real world examples of using a powerful and popular .NET document-oriented database RavenDB. Nick will go over how to think differently in structuring your data, along with sharing tips on using the RavenDB IDE and Fiddler to use RavenDB effectively. Wrapping up with covering ease of installation and deployment to production systems.

Redis - Ofer Zelig

This session will be a beginner-intermediate level introduction to Redis. Redis is a highly popular in-memory database, but with some unique characteristics that differentiate it from other solutions: optional persistence, blazing fast speed, atomic operations and more. It has several different usages, it is very easy to learn and use, and it's used by some very big Internet sites in a way that allows them to scale exponentially while minimising the need to scale up database servers. We will introduce Redis and its data types, deploying it as a server, interacting with it using .Net clients and different usages.

    Hi fellow geeks,

    My company needs a web-based solution/module for form filling, and we explored and researched a few options, none of them is near perfect so far.
    I would be happy to hear whether you have some successful experience with such a module (strongly preferred in .NET).

    It's not "just" a form generator / scaffolder though. In a nutshell, what we need is a multi-page form. A system that can accept metadata about the structure of the various pages, display them, validate and accept input. Pages can consist of regular fields, groups of fields (with multiplication for example), dependencies, business rules, calculations, sub-pages, ability to continue to next pages even when some pages are "invalid" (and then force the user to make them valid before final submission), dynamic "unpacking" of certain fields or pages based on existing answers etc.

    As I said, this is just in a nutshell. I would highly appreciate any info/experience of any of you with this type of system.

    Here are the slides of my talk:

    Unfortunately audio recording didn't work out, that's a bummer. If you have any specific questions feel free to contact me.

    Thank you all for coming and for the good feedback. We'll see if the video recording went well. If it did - great. Anyway I'll post the presentation itself as well since we didn't have time to cover all of the slides, so you'll be able to read offline and follow the hyperlinks.

    Hello everyone,
    Attending this meetup is very important for me. But, I am in the waiting list. If I could not find a place until the date, I would jump in through the Window.

      Supporting Paul is just as dangerous, has he suggested that JavaScript might help your problem yet?
