Introduction to NoSQL Databases for beginners
Date: Monday, May 23rd at 11am PT / 2pm ET
Join Aleks Volochnev from the DataStax Developers Team and learn why more and more traditional and cloud native applications are using the power of NoSQL Databases. In about 60 minutes, you’ll learn in detail what NoSQL is, where it came from, and what is wrong with NoSQL.
This workshop is great for those coming from a relational background and wanting to get hands-on with databases with no tables, rows, primary keys, or foreign keys. You’ll learn about Tabular, Document, Key Value and Graph Databases before you get hands-on with your own NoSQL database using AstraDB - a cloud-native database as a service and the easiest way to get started on your professional NoSQL journey.
