How Document Databases Simplify Database Design

Ted Dunning View Bio

Ted will walk though how a real world database can be restructured using nested data structures resulting in a much simpler design that achieves high performance and scalability and is much easier to understand than the original. In addition, Ted will show how the resulting database can be queried using SQL tools such as Apache Drill, or using API’s in Python, Javascript and Java.
