After years of working with all sorts of databases and wrangling with South to support just five of them, Andrew takes a look at databases (relational, document, key-value and more) and at some of the problems that Django programmers often come across with them.
The talk will cover (among other things) the disadvantages of relational databases, why "NoSQL" isn't always the answer, the pains of storing geographic data, a small amount of database theory, and the very small number of good things about MySQL.
Python and Django developer, pilot, and archer. Currently writing shiny things for Lanyrd.
