                         NoSQL and MongoDB, Relating
                         to Non-Relational Databases

This talk will introduce the whats and wherefores of the non-relational
database world (often called "NoSQL" databases), followed by a detailed
look at MongoDB, a dynamic, schema-free, document-oriented database. 
Topics will include key-value stores, dynamo- and bigtable-descendants,
document-oriented databases, scaling strategies.  Databases to be discussed
include Memcached, Tokyo Cabinet, CouchDB, SimpleDB, Cassandra, Riak,
Voldemort, and MongoDB.

Map & Directions:

  We meet in the basement. Enter the library and head to the back. If the
  door is closed when you arrive you can ask the manager of the library for
  the keys to the room if you're comfortable opening up the basement, or
  you can wait for some of the others to arrive.

  We will continue meeting on a bi-weekly basis at the Hudson Library at
  66 Leroy St New York, NY 10014.

  It is helpful, but not necessary to have a notebook computer.          
  The WiFi at the library works now.
