What we're about

The NYC NoSQL & NewSQL Group
(formerly known as The NYC MySQL Group)
is the world’s largest database Meetup!

HD-Video of our previous events is regularly posted to our YouTube channel http://goo.gl/Y0MHCL and published to the Database Month website http://www.DBMonth.com


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.

SQL NYC is the world's largest database community on Meetup, focusing on NoSQL, NewSQL & Big Data.

Prior speakers have included:
- Creator of MySQL
- Both founders, CEO and CTO, of MongoDB
- Inventor of PHP
- Chief Technical Officer of the City of New York
- Founder of Microsoft Azure DocumentDB
- CEO of Couchbase
...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.

Database Month Festival (http://www.DatabaseMonth.com)
To remain cutting-edge, we host the biannual Database Month (http://www.DBMonth.com) festival, focusing on:


NoSQL including MongoDB, Couchbase, Aerospike, CouchDB, Redis, Riak, Cloudant

NewSQL such as NuoDB, VoltDB, MemSQL

MySQL forks & alternatives like Clustrix, MariaDB, Percona, Drizzle

Big data technologies like Hadoop, Cassandra, MarkLogic, HPCC

🤯 Semantic SQL: How to Leverage SQL Superpowers with a SQL Knowledge Graph 🧠📊

► VIRTUAL EVENT! Participate from home! ► Lots of free swag giveaways PLUS win the all-new Fire HD 8 tablet! ► Dan Weitzner, VP R&D and Co-Founder, Timbr.ai RSVP now at https://zoom.us/meeting/register/tJAucO6hrjwsE9xPqvQ1p1GS3p6gzqD4t1F1 The knowledge revolution has reached the SQL world, and it will change it forever! Join us at this action-packed event where you will learn all about semantic SQL knowledge graphs, why they will change the SQL world forever, and how data-sector professionals like you can benefit from it. Big data is complex! It has variety and is difficult to manage, so organizations typically only use a fraction of the data that they store. Throughout typical enterprises there are many thousands of tables that need to be connected to each other in order to derive meaningful insights using ever more complex analytics. Representing the connected world by describing relationships and their contextual information makes everything better, especially when machines need to understand each other by agreeing on the common meanings of the data that they store. It is also enormously helpful when utilizing artificial intelligence to make use of big data, to develop deep learning algorithms, train machine learning models and make other innovative uses of your data. With relational databases and SQL it is a challenge to represent and derive knowledge from tables, columns and rows. Besides the complexities of union and join statements on SQL queries, you cannot easily visualize and explore tables and columns as connected data. In addition, there is no such thing in SQL as an abstract concept to represent a common meaning of columns in separate tables or databases. The semantic SQL revolution has arrived and makes everything better, enabling relational databases to represent actual knowledge using SQL Knowledge Graphs. Join us in this event to learn: - How any SQL-fluent professional can implement a SQL Knowledge Graph in a short time directly on top of an existing database without needing to add infrastructure, move data or do ETL operations - How SQL query length gets reduced by up to 90% by utilizing semantics - How to query hundreds of tables at once in standard SQL without union or join statements - How you can empower analysts by seamlessly connecting SQL Knowledge Graphs to any BI tool PLUS: we will also include hands-on demos of real-life use cases where you can see for yourself the power of visualizing and exploring relational data as connected data in a graph. ►►► Dan Weitzner, VP R&D and Co-Founder, Timbr.ai (http://timbr.ai) ◄◄◄ Dan co-founded and leads the software development team at Timbr.ai.
