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.

🦏 Autonomous Database Self-Management with End-User Transparency +Caviar/Cheese

• Free caviar, cheese, chocolate & fun hard-drinks PLUS giving away $500 of books! • Oren Eini, CEO & Founder, Hibernating Rhinos • A Database Month event http://www.DBMonth.com/database/autonomous-database In this exciting presentation, Oren will explore the next natural phase of economical administration to significantly reduce human supervision. It is a combination of two intertwined themes: mature database self-management and transparency to end users. Mature database self-management is achieved by a set of autonomous database behaviors, including continuous detection of the cluster's state, smart shuffling of data and tasks in the cluster, learning about the operational environment, and automatic introduction and management of indexes. Transparency to end users is gained by features like invisibility of auto-indexing to applications, and a tight integration between cluster nodes and clients, so that clients would not be alarmed by automatic failure-recoveries. A database that intelligently organizes itself and resolves its own issues and shields its end-users from unnecessary alarms will exempt its administrator from many daily hassles. In principle, non-relational databases are economical creatures; they are designed to do what is needed within the resources that are available. But it is also important to avoid wasting money, time, computing power and human effort - and for that you need autonomous database behaviors. This presentation will teach you exactly how to do that! ••• Oren Eini, CEO & Founder, Hibernating Rhinos ••• Oren Eini, CEO and Founder of Hibernating Rhinos, has more than 20 years of experience in the development world with a strong focus on the Microsoft and .NET ecosystem.
