September 2010 meeting of the Israel Dot Net Developers User Group

Our guest speaker for our September 2010 meeting of the Israel Dot Net Developers User Group is Oren “Ayende“ Eini. We will take a look at developing applications without a SQL database – why and how.

Developing .NET applications without a SQL database

The buzz is on, everyone is talking about those NoSQL databases, but what ARE they? Do I really need to SQL behind? In this session, we will explore key / value databases, document databases, graph databases and column family databases. Their strong and weak points, and when you should use them. We will also discuss the options available for the .NET community on the NoSQL. In particular, we will look at Rhino DHT and Raven DB, two NoSQL databases on the .NET platform.

As always, we'll have our special "Hatzilu" session at our meeting. So please come prepared to discuss your most frustrating problems (or at least some of them!) and to share some of your own techniques and solutions that you have found useful in your applications.
