Join Tampa Bay PHP for free food, drinks and giveaways as we welcome Akiban Technologies to present on MySQL scalability and noSQL.
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 Ari will cover the architecture and operational ideas that underline the Akiban Server, which is being currently used by a number of large SaaS companies whose applications are written in PHP with really interesting use cases.
Ari is Product Manager 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 & Swag
We'll also be providing pizza and drinks for attendees, as well as Akiban swag (USB drives, coffee mugs, t-shirts..etc). Our meetups are always a lot of fun with lively conversation throughout and we look forward to seeing you there!
