I just wanted to take a second and invite you to Akiban's meetup on Tuesday (April 17th @ 6:30) in Tampa.
NoSQL document stores are generally considered at the opposing extreme to relational databases. Schema and SQL are perceived to be at the core of the problem. Akiban Server is an open source database that brings document stores and relational databases together. Developers get powerful document access and schema evolution capabilities alongside surprisingly powerful SQL. In this presentation Ori will cover the architecture and operational ideas that underline the Akiban Server, which is being used by a number of large SaaS companies [running MySQL | whose applications are written in PHP | Ruby ] with really interesting use cases.
Ari Weil is Product Manager for Akiban Technologies and covers markets, projects and product direction. Prior to Akiban, Ari worked as product manager for Quest Software's application and database performance management products. He has a Bachelor's from The Ohio State University.
Food, Drinks and Swag:We'll also be providing pizza and drinks for attendees, as well as Akiban swag (USB drives, coffee mugs, t-shirts..etc). Our meetup groups are always a lot of fun with lively conversation throughout, we hope to see you there! RSVP HERE
