Portland Ruby Brigade monthly meeting - Non-relational Ruby data stores: CouchDB, MongoDB, Tokyo Tyrant

Robert Half Technology, 2nd Floor Conference Room
222 SW Columbia St
Portland, OR 97201, US (map)
Public WiFi



The Portland Ruby Brigade is a user group for Ruby programmers in the Portland, Oregon, area. Join other developers for presentations and discussions about Ruby and its uses.

Some of tonight's presentations:

Igal Koshevoy will give an overview of a few different data stores. He will focus mostly on MongoDB and Tokyo Tyrant; but he will also touch on CouchDB. Igal will discuss the pros and cons of these databases, features, performance and how they stack up to relational databases.

Jesse Hallett will expand on CouchDB with an overview of some Ruby libraries that provide high-level interfaces to CouchDB and an open source ORM he's building on top of it. These are the early days of non-relational databases. So in my opinion this is a good time to think hard about what a high-level interface should look like.

There will be a definite Ruby slant to this meeting. But there should also be a lot of information covered that will be useful to people working with any language.

Markus Roberts will tease and amaze us with a new Ruby mystery code sample.

...and more!
