Doug will be talking about How I learned to stop worrying and love the SQL – converting Quepid from Redis to MySQL

NoSQL is often the right choice for many of our clients. However, when implementing our flagship product, Quepid, it turned out to be the wrong choice. Learn how we realized we were falling into a trap – modeling relational data in NoSQL – and decided the right decision was to migrate to MySQL. In this talk I’ll discuss this decision to highlight the strengths/weaknesses of NoSQL databases like Redis, Cassandra, etc vs relational databases. Lessons learned through well-trod war story that starts with the convenience, ease-of-use, and low startup cost of Redis and ends with the powerful features, robust relational capabilities, and reliability of a relational database.
