Presentation: "NoSQL: Past, Present, Future"

Time: Thursday 09:20 - 10:10

Location: To be announced


There were databases before SQL --- the relational model replaced them.

"NoSQL" is not about SQL at all -- it is about building bottom-up layered systems following the model of Unix rather than the top-down relational model derived from declarative set operations.

What can we learn from the "pre-SQL" systems' failures and to where must the current NoSQL solutions evolve to address the full range of application needs?
