Details At-A-Glance
"The Past, Present and Future of NoSQL"
Who: Emil Eifrem, CEO, Neo Technology
When: Tuesday, May 22, 2012 at 4:00PM Pacific Time
Where: OSBC, Hyatt Regency San Francisco, 5 Embarcadero Center
Session Description: It seems like everywhere we look there's talk about next-gen databases. Under the rallying cry of "NoSQL," several close-kept secret databases have gone open-source recently, giving everyone many exciting and confusing new opportunities. Some perform like crazy, some scale out to football field size, some just keep going no matter what, and none of them look like the SQL database we all grew up with. This session will review the NoSQL landscape, with an overview of the four main categories of NoSQL databases, and discuss what's currently lacking to make the enterprise adopt NoSQL.

About the Speaker
Emil is the founder of the Neo4j open source graph database, the most widely deployed graph database in the world. As a life-long compulsive programmer who started his first free software project in 1994, Emil has, with horror, witnessed his recent degradation into a VC-backed PowerPoint engineer. As the CEO of Neo4j's commercial sponsor Neo Technology, Emil is now mainly focused on spreading the word about the powers of graphs and preaching the demise of tabular solutions everywhere. Emil presents regularly at conferences such as JAOO, JavaOne, QCon, and OSCON.
