Level: Intermediate

So much has happened in the worlds of Big Data and NoSQL in the past year it's hard to know where to begin. The open source Hadoop project introduced a completely new architecture, making it far more usable. NoSQL databases like HBase, Cassandra and MongoDB have taken on new features and pulled ahead of the pack. Amazon's DynamoDB has become far more capable in terms of indexing and its integration with other AWS data services. Microsoft introduced its own NoSQL database called DocumentDB and added HBase to HDInsight, its Hadoop distribution, which now runs on Linux as well as Windows.

Meanwhile, enterprise developers are still getting real work done with relational databases and Enterprise BI tools. Who has time to learn about Big Data, Analytics and NoSQL? Take a day for this workshop and you'll break the ice with all of these. You'll see the technologies running before your eyes, working across multiple clouds and on-premises. Most important, you'll get a sense of where these technologies fit in and complement the database products you've been working with for years.
