Free beer, desserts, soda & swag!

A Database Month event:

SQL is the language of choice for relational database management systems but it is traditionally slow and does not scale past a single machine. In this session, learn how to horizontally scale your data and workload on a distributed SQL system powered by commodity hardware for high performance real-time analytics. We will also cover how to take advantage of distributed parallel processing by writing parallelizable SQL queries. Attend this session to learn:

• How to design schemas that take advantage of the distributed system

• What types of queries can be run extremely efficiently in a distributed system

• Tricks to manipulate complex queries to avoid shuttling around data in a distributed system

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
