The ViennaDB meetup group focuses on open source databases. These include RDBMS (MySQL, PostgreSQL,...), NoSQL (MongoDB, Redis, Cassandra, Riak, CouchDB, HBase,...), search (Elasticsearch and Solr) and related technologies like Hadoop or streaming solutions. All skill levels are welcome as we'll both cover the basics and take a look at more advanced use cases. I'm looking forward to meeting other people interested in everything databasy.

18:30 Doors open
19:00 Talk by Richard Hipp, creator of SQLite
# SQLite: Where it came from and where it is going
SQLite is an open-source SQL database engine and one of the most
widely deployed units of software in the world today - perhaps the
most widely deployed. There are current more instances of SQLite
running than there are instances of Linux, or iOS, or Windows, or
of all other database engines combined.
This talk will describe how SQLite came to be, how it is different
from other SQL engines and other open-source projects, the business
model used by the SQLite development team, and forecasts for where
SQLite is going in the future.
In a rare confluence, the two primary SQLite developers, Richard
Hipp and Dan Kennedy, are both expected to be in attendence and
participate in the presentation.
