Learn amazing new data tech from technology creators, founders & tech execs CEO / CTO / CIO / VP.

All of our presentations are geared for a general-audience of people interested in database technologies; many events go into deep-tech but always include prerequisite knowledge so that all attendees (beginners to advanced) can expect to be able to grasp the concepts and leave much more knowledgeable.

Prior speakers have included:
- Creator of MySQL
- Both founders, CEO and CTO, of MongoDB
- Inventor of PHP

...and the list goes on...

About our SQL NYC community, written by Edward Oates:
(Ed Oates co-founded Oracle Corporation with Larry Ellison)

Data is at the center of our technological revolution: acquiring it, accessing it, searching it, analyzing it, and securing it. Nearly everything else we do is to provide a user friendly window for those activities.

Gathering to learn about data management and security is a vital activity to motivate the innovators who will sustain our technological progress and who will make the break through inventions that advance us by leaps rather than steps.

The NoSQL Era Has Ended 🔮 NewSQL & Converged Databases Are The Future

Free indulgent fine foods, classy drinks, freebie-swag giveaways and lots of fun! Presented by: ‣ Domenic Ravita, Field CTO, MemSQL This fun-filled presentation will provide you with the education and tools to create a concrete strategy for planning your next database infrastructure, and to analyze if NewSQL and converged databases would be the best fit for your application. The last 15 years have brought many new developments in data management strategies. Previously developers had the relational model as the dominant and nearly only paradigm for databases. Then in the early 2000s, the rise of NoSQL datastores enabled support for massive and convenient data ingestion. This model served multiple use cases including web analytics, complex event processing and streaming analytics bringing new options to developers and data architects. Over the last few years there has been a relational SQL renaissance powered by new hardware innovations. In this presentation, we will look at some of those hardware innovations, the database innovations leveraging them, and the use cases that fit NewSQL and converged databases. ••• Domenic Ravita, Field CTO, MemSQL ••• Domenic has over 20 years of experience across application development, architecture, and data platforms. As Field CTO at MemSQL, he advises enterprises on the appropriate use of various technologies and architectures within strategic initiatives using MemSQL's capabilities. • Swag giveaway + food/drinks at 6:30pm • Power-Networking at 6:35pm • Presentation starts at 6:40pm • A Database Month event http://www.DBMonth.com/database/newsql •••> Please help foster kids without parents learn to be financially-independent IT professionals - learn how now at https://www.TechieYouth.org
