If you've ever built a website and realized you need a database but have no idea which one to pick, then this is for you. This meetup will give you the knowledge to select the right database for the right reason. We will go over the 3 main types of databases: relational, document, and graph. We will do some light coding in this meetup, so be sure to bring your laptop. Mac/Linux users will be able to directly clone the tutorial project, while Windows uers will have access to a Cloud9 dev environment to work in from their browser.

My name is Stephanie Ortiz and I'm a Lead Software Engineer at Salesforce. I've worked on a little bit of everything: test automation, customer-facing features, documentation, and now building microservices. My team's current project involves building and suporting our own service while scaling to 150+ million requests per day with a request time of under 5 milliseconds.

Thank you to our sponsor Apex Digital Solutions for providing space & continued support.

*Doors will lock around 7pm, so please be timely and respectful.
