Abstract

Throughout the course of the mobile apps revolution, the world has seen many changes in the technology landscape. What started off with fewer than 500 apps has quickly surpassed the millions mark. As languages, platforms, and styles have come and gone one thing, above all else, has persisted; data.

Come join us as we examine mobile data usage trends, and navigate through the plethora of options currently available for wrangling it all. More specifically, we’ll take an in-depth look at the two main database options: SQL and NoSQL. We’ll learn what each is, and when to use them to solve business critical problems in mobile. As developers we know when it comes to technology options there’s no silver bullet, but you might be surprised how lop-sided the SQL vs. NoSQL debate is as it pertains to mobile.

Qcon

Rob Hedgpeth has been slinging code since the early 2000's. Like many others, he started his journey by building pretty horrendous looking websites. Fortunately, for the world, he has since evolved and has branched out to a variety of projects across web, desktop, mobile, and IoT. During his time at Xamarin and Microsoft he contributed to the architecture and development of many mobile apps using native and cross-platform development platforms. Now as a developer advocate for Couchbase, Rob gets to combine his love for technology with his mission to fuel developers' curiosity and passion. In his free time you can find Rob failing to control his dogs, getting utterly dismantled at Overwatch, or trying to convince himself that he actually enjoys working out.
