Fundamentally rethinking how you model data is actually a really fun thing to do. Modeling data for a relational database is such second nature, that you constantly have to stop your brain from doing what comes naturally. Why would you want to do that, you might ask? Because we’ve been modeling more or less the same way for decades, it’s time we challenged ourselves, experimented and learned.
Polyglot programming has brought us back the beauty of learning, experimenting, and using any programming langauge. Polyglot persistence is the equivalent in the data space: gaining back the option to learn, experiment, and use the best data models, storage engines, and distribution models.
