Modeling and Scaling with NoSQL / Couchbase
Jasdeep Jailta from Couchbase will provide an indepth talk on working with NoSQL databases within a Rail framework. Specifically he'll cover the use of Couchbase but he'll also talk about NoSQL pattern, use cases, and hard-won lessons.
Some of the topics he'll cover include:
• What is NoSQL? Where did it come from and why?
• What is Couchbase, why you should care
• Who uses Couchbase? (and why were they lucky they did?)
• What a model looks like with Couchbase and Ruby/Rails
• What are the few things that new NoSQL users have a hard time with?

He is the author and maintainer of CouchbaseModels.com and CouchbaseOnRails.com and promises to get into things really technical.
Rails + BaaS: Mobile Apps and Beyond
Pairing a client / web app with Backend as a Service is a growing model for mobile apps but it also makes sense for other application architectures as well. Scott Ganyo from Apigee will talk about using service-based backend technologies to create applications that are less brittle and far more extensible and scalable.
He'll address top characteristics for reliable BaaS's and how to integrate service-oriented backends with a Rails app framework. He'll use Apigee's App Services BaaS as a backdrop for his talk.
