Free · Online Event
Join us and discover the process behind the smartest move you will ever make...from SQL to NoSQL!

So you’re either interested in NoSQL or already started down the path, but you have legacy SQL based applications to migrate over. How do you do it? What are the practical implications to your data model and how might one flip the switch between the two once your new system is in place?

Join us as we walk you through the process using the distributed NoSQL powerhouse Apache Cassandra™ and the petclinic reference application. During this 2 hour session we’ll dig into how to change your data model and why, how to migrate your data, and finally how to handle the transition to your new NoSQL database while your application is live.

You'll get hands-on with NoSQL databases using ASTRA - a cloud-native database as a service and the easiest way to get started on your NoSQL journey, no credit card required.


Session Details:

  • NoSQL: What it is, where it came from, and why you should care
  • Data Modeling in NoSQL: How this differs and why you need it
  • Understanding your NoSQL application workflows
  • Migrating your data and getting hands-on with your new NoSQL DB!
