Stuff Their Databases Say

If you’ve been to one of my “Stuff Your Database Says” sessions, you know I collect photos of how my data is messed up by information systems.

Many of my frequent flyer friends can confirm that integration between airlines, even alliance partners, is plagued with problems.

Here’s today’s boarding pass. I call this my “secret international alias”.

Podcast: NoSQL and PeopleTalkingTech

Sep 17, 2012   //   by Karen Lopez   //   Blog, Data, Database, NoSQL, Professional Development, Speaking  //  No Comments

I recently talked with my good friend Denny Cherry (@mrdenny | blog) about my experience at the NoSQL Now! conference and working with NoSQL technologies.  Denny’s new podcast series is called People Talking Tech and he has other interesting topics and people coming up soon.

My comments focused on how at the NoSQL professionals understand that it means "Not Only SQL" and can’t mean "No SQL" and have much of a future.  Using the right tool for the right job.  Cost, benefit, risk and all.

One of the things we talked about on the closing panel is "how do you find somebody that is a good architect who can tell you which types of technologies you can use for which use cases…"

Even though many people talk about NoSQL needing no architecture, we still need people to help choose when and what NoSQL technologies to use.  Seems to me that having experience working hands-on with relational and NoSQL technologies is going to be hugely valuable in the next couple of years.  If you have relational experience, now is the time to start learning about non-relational ones.

Securing SQL Server, Second Edition: Protecting Your Database from AttackersBy the way, we talked a bit about database security.  Denny’s new edition of his book Securing SQL Server, Second Edition: Protecting Your Database from Attackers has recently been released.  Check it out.
