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.
We'll do a quick overview of where NoSQL has its many advantages (and few disadvantages) over SQL, take a look at RavenDB's architecture and feature set, and then learn how to apply RavenDB to some simple applications. If time allows, we'll also go over Raven's advanced features, such as Multi-Map and Map/Reduce indexes.
