I'm excited to announce that Matthew Groves will be joining us for the July 2017 T.NUG meeting as our guest speaker!

Let me fill you in on what's going on.

Speaker Bio: Matthew D. Groves is a guy who loves to code. It doesn't matter if it's C#, jQuery, or PHP: he'll submit pull requests for anything. He has been coding professionally ever since he wrote a QuickBASIC point-of-sale app for his parent's pizza shop back in the 90s. He currently works as a Developer Advocate for Couchbase. His free time is spent with his family, watching the Reds, and getting involved in the developer community. He is the author of AOP in .NET (published by Manning), and is also a Microsoft MVP.


Talk Title: I Have a NoSQL Toaster
Talk Abstract: My toaster stores data without SQL and without tables. But making a choice based on what something doesn’t have isn’t terribly useful. “NoSQL” is an increasingly inaccurate catch-all term that covers a lot of different types of data storage. Let’s make more sense of this new breed of database management systems and go beyond the buzzword. In this session, the four main data models that make up the NoSQL movement will be covered: key-value, document, columnar and graph. How they differ and when you might want to use each one will be discussed. This session will be looking at the whole ecosystem, with a more detailed focus on Couchbase, Cassandra, Riak KV, and Neo4j.
