11:45 AM - 12:30 PM
This session will cover the differences between relational and NoSQL document database models and the reasons why developers prefer multi-schema NoSQL data stores over relational ones. With this background we'll provide some examples of varying levels of normalization in a JSON document database context. This provides attendees with ideas for modeling compromises that minimize data quality issues and account for data governance objectives. The students will gain the following:
- Be exposed to the object-oriented versus relational divide, called the object-relational impedance mismatch
- Introduction to data modeling in JSON documents as opposed to relational form
- Understanding of the object-oriented developer's perspective and possible governance principals that mitigate friction between relational and non-relational developers/proponents
- Overview of techniques and tools used to document JSON document models (getting at the golden BigMetadata)
