Description

A lot of companies are checking the NOSQL conversation box these days but end up getting confused by the sheer amount of information that is available on the Internet.

In this talk, Sam Bisbee, Director of Technical Business Development at Cloudant, looks at how NOSQL impacts your application building decisions, discusses some of the insider baseball in the NOSQL community, covers a few tons of misconceptions, and discusses Cloudant’s views on what all this NOSQL and big data hullabaloo is all about. The talk will be littered with case studies and examples from clients and previous projects.

Sam is a developer, entrepreneur, and consultant. He’s the Director of Technical Business Development at Cloudant during the day and hacker of side projects at night, both of which are usually open source. Learn more about Sam: http://www.linkedin.com/in/sambisbee.
