Applied NoSQL in .NET

A session at SDD 2014

Tuesday 20th May, 2014

2:00pm to 3:30pm (GMT)

Perhaps you’ve heard about the next generation of databases, roughly classified as NoSQL databases? These databases are generally much better than RDBMS at scaling, performance, and ease-of-development (e.g. in NoSQL the object-relational impedance mismatch usually disappears). Unfortunately, many talks on NoSQL are very academic and general. Not this one.
We’ll explore the NoSQL landscape and look at the various options out there. Then we’ll learn how to leverage MongoDB (a popular NoSQL DB) to build .NET applications using LINQ as the data access language. From there we will build out a .NET application using LINQ and MongoDB in a series of interactive demos using Visual Studio 2012 and C#.
