NoNoSQL: Structured lightweight data models for the Web with RDF*
Publish your data to the Web using the W3C Resource Description Framework (RDF). Yeah, *that* W3C.
Four out of five highly-paid Oracle DBAs agree that rigid Relational data models are fun for everyone. So what if you’re that fifth one? Yeah, NoSQL key-value stores may scale, but your crucial, scalable data is complete gibberish without all that work you did writing you own DAO layer from scratch.
Can we strike a balance between unstructured data and rigid schemas? The W3C’s RDF standard may be the answer. Plus, it tastes great with REST!
WARNING: Session may include one or more incompletely-understood mathematical concepts. Mathematicians and professional philosophers are asked to keep their big yaps shut ‘cause we’re building stuff.
