RavenDB 2.0 - Painless NoSQL for the .Net Developer http://spkr8.com/t/19621


Have you wanted to break in to NoSQL but were intimidated by other options? Do you think scalable multi-entity transactions are not possible without a full RDBMS like SQL Server? Fed up with the mapping overhead that comes with ORMs like Entity Framework? Come take a closer look at RavenDB. This next-generation document database was designed specifically with .Net developers in mind. Learn how easy it is to use to add a schemaless, structured data store to your .Net applications.

No prior knowledge of RavenDB or NoSQL is required, but you should have familiarity with C# and general application development. This will be a fast-paced discussion with lots of real code examples. We will cover the following areas, starting from the basic, and moving towards the advanced. There should be something for everyone.

  • Document / Entity modeling considerations
  • Basic usage of Raven's LINQ API
  • Full-Text analyzed searches
  • Using Map / Reduce indexes
  • Indexing related documents (pseudo-JOIN operations)
  • Update patching via JavaScript
  • Real-Time Change Notification
  • Replicating data to a SQL Server
  • Geo-Spatial Search (distance, proximity, polygons, etc.)
  • Using RavenDB in a web application
  • Embedding RavenDB in a desktop application
  • Indexing Word and PDF attachment contents
