The NoSQL NYC Meetup has been enjoying quite a year. Great talks from all spectrums of the NoSQL world: document stores, graph databases, key-value stores, you name it. What I have learned from all these talks is that nothing wows a crowd more than a live demo. Marko Rodriguez's demonstation of Gremlin using OpenRDF Sail data not even on his computer was particularly fascinating.
That is why I am excited to see what Shay Hassidim from GigaSpaces brings this week. He is promising live demos working with big data. The type of data that makes NoSQL systems a necessity and not merely a premature optimization. The talk will cover data access patterns, MapReduce, Cassandra, and MongoDB.
If you are in New York City, stop by!
