There's a storm brewing. You may have felt the increased pressure when you last typed 'CREATE DATABASE latest_project;' into your MySQL console - or you might have been seeding the clouds in an attempt to start the storm sooner.

The name of that storm? NoSQL.

In this session, we'll explore the NoSQL movement: the general alternatives to relational databases (key-value stores, document-oriented databases, and graph databases) and some of the domains in which they provide the best fit. We'll also look at ways to resolve the tension between relational databases and the alternatives, with examples of hybrid applications.
