There’s a lot of hype out there on NoSQL databases, but not enough honest talk and concrete use cases to know when and how to do it right. Sam Bisbee, Director of Technical Business Development at Cloudant, will discuss the design decisions you should consider when vetting NoSQL as the next back end for your mobile app.

Join us for an honest conversation on when NoSQL is the right solution, and when it’s not. Sam will discuss the performance tradeoffs of NoSQL and relational databases (including SQLite) the notion of data modeling in a schemaless system, and common transactional architectures for applications built on NoSQL.
