Everything You Expect from NoSQL and More! (+ beer, pizza, swag & snacks)

Free BEER, swag, PIZZA, soda & snacks!

Presented by
Gary Lang, Executive Vice President of Product, MarkLogic

A Database Month event:

With the growing volumes of unstructured and multistructured data flooding into our data centers, the relational databases we've relied on for the last 30 years are now too limiting and inflexible. Next-generation NoSQL (Not Only SQL) databases have gained popularity because they are ideally suited to deal with vast volumes of diverse data.

Gary Lang, VP of Product, will share how MarkLogic has helped customers to obtain real value from big data. Learn how major industry leaders are creating new revenue streams, gaining insights to increase market share, making the world more secure, providing access to valuable information as well as helping to reduce bottom line expense.

MarkLogic Was NoSQL Before NoSQL Was Cool: That means we've had over 12 years to build in the enterprise-hardened performance, security, and reliability that you expect from your enterprise database. We look forward to chatting with the NYC MySQL members and engaging in great data conversations.

    I wish the presentation had been far more technical. For example, I did not learn that MarkLogic's NoSQL database product is a key/vale database until I spokewith the presenter at the end of the Q&A. The presenter said that no one had told him that the meetup is a heavily technical meetup. It will help everybody if the presenters are told what kind of audience to expect :) I don't mean to include the presenter but sending a marketing guy to this meetup is like sending a guppy to a sharks' buffet - the guppy is not happy because its life expectation is about to be drastically hortenedand the sharks are not happy because the guppy was not even a snack on a toothpick :)
