Presentation: Go Simple, Fast, Elastic with Couchbase Server and Document-oriented Data management

Track: Navigating the BigData Ocean / Time: Monday 11:30 - 12:20 / Location: Rytmisk Sal, Musikhuset

Couchbase Server is a simple, fast, elastic documented oriented database. It is simple by making it easy to develop apps where application logic is mapped to data storage through a natural, document oriented approach. It is simple to monitor and manage in production as well, and elastically allows administrators to add and remove resources to a cluster at any time, without interrupting application processing. Couchbase Server's speed comes from its actively managed cache, compatible with (and builtupon) memcached. Indexing, analytics and other advanced ways of managing and managing the data in a Couchbase cluster are easily available through the definition of Couchbase views. These are built upon flexible, incremental map-reduce functions defined for a given database.

Couchbase co-founder J.Chris Anderson will give session attendees a hands-on tour of a Couchbase Server cluster. Following this, J.Chris will show how this comes together with common programming languages. Attendees of the session will learn how they can apply Couchbase Server and its fast, scaleable approach to managing the data behind interactive web apps.

Presentation: The Aarhus 6

Track: Navigating the BigData Ocean / Time: Monday 15:50 - 16:40 / Location: Rytmisk Sal, Musikhuset

We will be using the analogy of a courtroom battle for this presentation and the room will be laid out in a courtroom style layout with the case being presented:

The people vs The Aarhus 6 (6 of the biggest names in NOSQL and NEWSQL technologies or the accussed as we like to call them!)  

Accused? Yes the terminolgy is a bit strong but in the name of role playing they are accussed of mis-informing the general public with outlandish claims and not warning of potential "tradeoffs" the public may encounter when using these products. For example, it may not be super fast, highly scalable or even easy to use in your environment but they said it was! 

The panel will be moderated by Kresten Krab Thorup.

However, we encourage (with a free beer for each question asked) as much audience participation as possible! We ran a similar track in Copenhagen in May and the audience actually asked most of the tough questions! So bring a sharp wit to this session. 

Its then up to the Judge to make sure the questions are asked and answered in a fair and open manner. BTW The judges decision is final!


So who is on the panel: 

Matt Heitzenroder (Basho), Chris Anderson (Couchbase), Jim Webber (Neo4J), Alvin Richards (10gen/MongoDB), Matt Dennis (Datastax), Martin Fowler ()
