Presentation: "Introduction to NoSQL"

Track: Apps of NoSQL / Time: Wednesday 10:20 - 11:10 / Location: Store Sal, Musikhuset

I'll be giving a rapid introduction to NoSQL databases: where they came from, the nature of the data models they use, and the different way you have to think about consistency. From this I'll outline what kinds of circumstances you should consider using them, why they will not make relational databases obsolete, and the important consequence of polyglot persistence.
