Talk: NodeJS in the NoSQL World

In many NodeJS applications one or even several (NoSQL-) databases are in use. In this talk you will get a short overview on how to connect to the different systems and get all the benefits of polyglot persistence into your NodeJS application. However there are also some challenges awaiting:

  • all databases have to be kept in sync
  • requests require data from several sources

The major part of this talk will be on how to solve these challenges in NodeJS and how utilizing a multi-model database can help on the way.

Thank you!
