Database Seminar - Databases and Programming Languages

Our very own well known and world famous Oliver Kennedy will be discussing databases and programming languages. NSC is more or less between the Governor's and Hochstetter parking lots. No permit is required after 3PM. 

We'll continue with light refreshments as we've been doing. Let's set 7:00 as the meet and get settled time with the talk starting at 7:15. Please rsvp so I know how many are coming. We have a new sponsor: Empire Innovation Group is a full service software, development, and consulting operating in the financial and healthcare benefit service industries. (I also still have a little of dooli's money to spend on this next meetup.)

Here is the expanded Meetup description.

The field of Databases brings to the table a portfolio of tools and building blocks that include Index data structures, Algorithms for common data-management tasks, and a number of well-understood, flexible models for data and query processing.  The field of Programming Languages brings to the table tools such as formal analysis, language design, and program equivalence.  

Recently, these two areas have seen an upsurge in cross-pollinated research and system-development efforts, rangeing from domain-specific languages for data-intensive computing to declarative debugging to new approaches to transaction processing and concurrency, through to query compilation to machine code.  

Over the course of an hour or two, Oliver will pontificate about cool things people are doing to unite these two fields, surveying some nifty research and industrial projects, and maybe diverging into some hypotheticals.

      Don't get me wrong, I am a huge postgres fan, but this benchmark is not comparing apples to apples. If pg was built from the ground up to run in "an all nodes fully live replicated & partitiond" set up by default and was then limited to one node like mongo, then the comparison might be a bit more viable. As it stands this seems a bit like enterprise DB whipped up a benchmark special here..... (having done a few myself I guess i know what to look for...)

      True, I would be curious to run this again using the replicated mongo + standalone and then BDR version of postgres

    Going to try to make it out, but there was no "maybe" option.

    Any way this seminar could be recorded? I have class at this time but would VERY much like to benefit from this. Thank you.
