Main Talk: Backbone with Extensible database APIs and their role in software architecture
By Max Neunhöffer from ArangoDB
These days, more and more software applications are designed using a micro services architecture, that is, as suites of independently deployable services, talking to each other with well-defined interfaces. This approach is helped by the fact that many NoSQL databases expose their API through HTTP, which makes it particularly easy to define the interfaces.
In this talk I will explain the benefits of this approach to the
Max Neunhöffer is a mathematician turned database developer. In his academic career he has worked for 16 years on the development and implementation of new algorithms in computer algebra, mainly for the open source system GAP. During this time he has juggled a lot with mathematical "big data" like group orbits containing trillions of points. Recently he has returned from St Andrews in Scotland to Germany, has shifted his focus to NoSQL databases and now helps to develop ArangoDB.
