Heralding the Death of NoSQL

Date: 2011-10-19
Time: 14:00–14:50
Room: Amsterdam 1
Level: Intermediate

The killer feature of many popular NoSQL databases is document based storage. It isn't often that real-word data is truly relational, and it's painful to persist rich domain models across millions of little tables in the pursuit of third normal form.

PLV8 embeds the super-fast V8 JavaScript engine into Postgres, which in turn makes Postgres the best document database in the world. It also brings the full power of arbitrary JavaScript functions to SQL.

We will go into what you can do today with PLV8, how it can be used to give Postgres near-native JSON support, and what it will bring in the future.
