NoBS NoSQL: A Mostly-Painless Introduction

An Introduction to Modern Methods Using Modern Database and Data-Analysis Tools to Solve Modern Problems. Some view NoSQL as the cool new "automagic" solution to solve all database problems.  Others consider it to be much ado about nothing — a buzzword invented by hipsters to pad their résumés.

The truth is far more nuanced and subtle:  NoSQL is actually a family of several different DBMS types, each of which focuses on a specific use case.  Eddy Dreger explains the fundamental philosophical difference underlying NoSQL versus SQL, discusses different flavors of NoSQL, and walks through the design and construction of a NoSQL database for a Web application.


Quick Talk: Cross Platform SQL Tricks by Matt Conrad

We will be covering some SQL tricks which are handy and somewhat less known to people who don't live in a query window. All of the SQL here is cross platform and will work on at least SQL Server, PostgreSQL, and MySQL.
