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

- 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:

Apache Cassandra was built for hybrid cloud implementations and that makes it easy for companies to fully exploit their cloud strategies without having to re-architect their applications or change their systems for data management. Sounds too good to be true? A lot of big companies have been doing it for years and you can too! In this presentation, we will cover best practices and strategies for deploying your app to Cassandra on any cloud that you want. We will discuss: • Uses cases that require the power of Cassandra for hybrid cloud • Data model considerations for your active anywhere application • Deployment strategies on any cloud. We do not care which cloud :) We will also perform a live demo running a true hybrid cloud setup. We will take the wrecking ball to it while you watch and be amazed as the application keeps on running.

⚠️ Insufficient Facts Are Dangerous! ☠️ Use a Logical Data Model to Combat Them!

• Free T-shirts, pizza, beer & drinks + win a Sonos One Speaker! • Mike Grove, Founder & VP of Engineering, Stardog • A Database Month event http://www.DBMonth.com/database/logical-model 34. What is 34?! Is it a distance? An amount? Temperature? Location? A time duration? Without any context, it is difficult to effectively use a piece of data. What that data is and what it means is critical context required to get the most out of your data. This is especially important in this era where data has become the most important asset of an enterprise. When you bring context to data and understand what it is as well as how it fits into your world, you create knowledge, and that is the fundamental building block of a modern enterprise. While understanding the context of data is key, it is also important to remember that there is no universal context. What makes sense in one case may not in another. We often see this in Master Data Management (MDM) scenarios where there is a disagreement on the definition of a customer and then the process grinds to a halt. Not only does a logical data model let us better represent our data, it provides us the flexibility to look at the data from a different perspectives and bring more agility as to how we leverage data in the enterprise. In this presentation we will discuss: • How to define what a logical data model is and contrast it to current approaches, like data lakes and warehouses • Examples of data models and how they can be used as lenses over our data • Why logical models are a key component to a knowledge graph • Real world use cases where a logical model was leveraged ••• Mike Grove, Founder & VP of Engineering, Stardog ••• Michael has more than 15 years of experience in AI, semantic technology and graph databases. Prior to Stardog, Michael performed research at Fujitsu Labs of America on the use of graph-based technologies in pervasive computing environments.
