Event Details:

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.

The Speaker:

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.

Directions:

The location is a little off the beaten path but easy to access. The easiest way to find it might be to put the intersection of Columbia Ave. and Beasley Dr. into your GPS and then follow these steps:

• From Columbia Ave., head West on Beasley Drive.

• Turn right on Charles R. Meek Drive, toward the end of Beasley. This is a private road and the name may not show up on your GPS. It is just before a single story brick building that has a large blue building behind it.

• On your left past the blue building you will see a large building surrounded by a black fence, this is the Public Safety Center.

• Continue around the building and you will come to the entrance to guest parking.

• As you walk toward the building, use the far left entrance next to the flagpoles.
