Generating NoSQL from SQL - Tools and techniques

Generating NoSQL from SQL - Tools and techniques

Thursday, 3:00pm - 3:50pm

We are all comfortable with Relational Databases and translating real word data to rows and columns. Some data does not fill well into this model or is too big. Embracing the new world of BigData non-relational databases, or NoSQL, can seem a little daunting, but not really. All knowledge and technology is additive, we just need a simple way to apply what we already know to the new technologies. NoSQL technologies frequently use APIs, rather than a Query Language to access the database, this can feel like a barrier or a new thing to learn. What if you could generate the NoSQL API from SQL and remove the barrier? You could then choose the appropriate NoSQL technology that meets your use case.


This presentation discusses tools and techniques for generating Aerospike APIs from Aerospike Query Language (AQL). But the principals can be applied to any SQL like language and any NoSQL API
