    Unfortunately I was not able to attend yesterday's meetup. Is it possible to share the slides? Curious to know if these meetups are recorded.

    it was not very interactive. there was just the talk about how great noSQL is. It talks about the general information about how it works with but no tutorials. The location was great for hosting I brought my friend he was amazed by the look of hosting company appNexus.

    How old is vintage soda? ;) Just kidding, hoping to meet people interested in connecting relational databases to NoSQL and web.

      Haha, very funny :) for clarification, it is brand new un-expired sodas in vintage-style new-bottles using vintage recipes.

    Sounds like a great presentation. Almost can't wait. I have a database schema I think will be simple and extraordinarily powerful as a back end to an application platform marketed with a hefty budget for a good sized team with equity on the table for the team. I'd love to see what it looks like in NoSQL.
