Into The Void: From MySQL to NoSQL to “Nothing”

A session at NoSQL matters 2012

Wednesday 30th May, 2012

1:40pm to 2:25pm (CET)

Wooga creates casual social games, and we approach each new game as a greenfield development project. This gives us the chance to experiment with different approaches and to try out promising new technologies.

In this talk, I will explain how our back-end architecture has evolved over time, and how our search for the "perfect backend stack"" has (so far) progressed through three distinct phases: from sharded relational database, over various NoSQL databases, to the question: “Do we really need a database, after all?”

I will share what worked well, what didn‘t, what lessons we have learned on the way - and which other directions we would like to explore in the future.
