cf.Objective() NoSQL BOF
Heads up that on Friday night of cf.Objective() I'll be facilitating a BOF on using NoSQL databases with CFML, so if you're interested in things like CouchDB (my favorite thing on the planet as of late), MongoDB, or any of the numerous others please come to the BOF! All skill levels are welcome so come to learn, come to share what you've done, or come to mock crazy people like myself who think the relational model is the biggest hoax ever perpetrated on the technology world and that we should have been using document-based datastores all along. Yes, that statement is meant to incite you to come to the BOF if you think I'm wrong, but I do believe it to a certain extent. ;-) When I say I'll be facilitating a BOF I mean just that--BOFs are meant to be highly participatory, free-form discussion forums, so while I'm happy to show off what I know about CouchDB, I'd personally love to learn more about some of the other NoSQL databases from people using those, and would love to have some heated discussions about NoSQL in general. See you Friday night at 8 pm!
