Ellen Friedman – Thinking With Your Eyes Closed
NoSQL is one of the most creative movements to emerge in database technology of recent history. How can you continue to foster this creative strength at the same time as you attend to the demands of NoSQL growing into mainstream, enterprise-ready technology? This talk will trace the connections between careful, disciplined work and leaps of insight and advancement in fields ranging from molecular biology to oceanography to the manufacture of modern “smart” textiles. We will examine current trends in the NoSQL movement including increasingly widespread use of NoSQL techniques to implement large scale time-series databases and the paradoxical emergence of SQL in NoSQL environments. Finally, rather than trying to predict the future, we’ll look at what future you choose to build.
