NoSQL track at QCon London 2011 #
Date: Mar.11th, 2011
Location: London, UK
Description: The world of data storage is changing and in the last year we’ve seen products moving towards a polyglot persistence model. There are many new scalable storage solutions that are non-SQLish and these are handling more and more data. As this happens entirely new problems and solutions see the light of day - going far beyond the traditional view that all data should go into a relational database and be accessed using SQL. We will take a look at where and how NoSQL can be used from people already using it.

MongoDB: Object Storage Strategies (Designing and Mapping) #
Date: August 10th, 2010
Location: Engine Yard, 500 Third St Suite 510 San Francisco, CA (map?)
Description: Come learn some of the strategies for mapping and storing your (object) data in MongoDB! With so much flexibility in how data is stored, and because each document can be different, it can be hard to design a schema that works well. We will investigate strategies for storing object graphs and relational data, in both linked (in other collections) and embedded (in the same document) forms.
Using MongoDB with Scala #
Date: August 10th, 2010
Location: Gilt Groupe Offices, 2 Park Ave, 4th Floor, New York, NY (map?)
Description: Brendan McAdams will be introducing MongoDB and reviewing how to use it with Scala. There are several drivers and ORM-like integration frameworks which will be reviewed, including one which Brendan maintains called “Casbah”. Casbah focused on providing a fluid DSL-like query syntax as close to core MongoDB querying as possible, as well as implicit conversions to simplify working with Mongo from Scala (but still using the official Java driver underneath it all). Discussion will also include the Lift framework’s recently introduced Mongo integration (including support for the ActiveRecord pattern) and Akka’s STM persistence using MongoDB.
Date: July 3rd, 2010
Location: La Cantine, 151 rue Montmartre, Passage des Panoramas,

Date: April 20-22, 2010
Location: London, UK
Description: NOSQL EU is a conference about non-relational database systems. It is sprung out of the observation that the era of the “one-size-fits-all database” seems to be over. Instead of squeezing all your data into tables, we believe the future is about choosing a data store that best matches your data set and operational requirements. It’s a future of heterogeneous data backends, polyglot persistence and choosing Not Only SQL but sometimes also a document database, a key-value store or a graph database.
