In the land of data persistence there have been many movements, and I remember when I was first introduced to that strange but interesting beast called NoSQL in the form of CouchDB. But Derick will finally provide the proper introduction, and show us how to make practical use of NoSQL.

Talk: From SQL to NoSQL

In this talk I will explain the differences between different types of noSQL databases. I will then progress to illustrate which paradigm shifts are necessary to successfully implement noSQL, using MongoDB as an example.

The approaches to schema design, fault tolerance, the network breaking and latency are all things that are inherent to scalability with noSQL solutions and with this talk you will learn how to use MongoDB effectively considering all the above mentioned situations.

Covered subjects will be: schema design, dealing with error situations and architecture of multi-node set-ups.
