We’ve been gearing up for this in the past months and we’re delighted to announce the first dates of our European Polyglot Persistence Meetups this summer. We’re starting off with Amsterdam, then moving on to Dublin, Paris, Berlin, Stockholm and London.
Some of you may ask what Polyglot Persistence is all about …
Polyglot Persistence means that when storing data, it is best to use multiple data storage technologies, chosen based upon the way data is being used by the application. In a world where developers reign, these developers would choose the optimal programming language for the job - and this trickles down to the data tier. The former is often referred to as polyglot languages and the latter as polyglot persistence. However, this freedom comes at a cost - more complexity.
In our world of 9s, we like to look at the database aspects of DevOps and this is also where we’re focussing with this new meetups series.
Initially, the idea is to cover MySQL, PostgreSQL and MongoDB storage backends with the topics of deployment, scaling, configuration, management, backups and monitoring. And with time and as members suggest topics, the scope is likely to broaden.
Our meetups schedule so far:
- 06 June - Amsterdam
- 08 June - Dublin
- 16 June - Paris
- 17 June - Berlin
- Stockholm tbc
- London tbc
Please sign up for the meetup of your choice, as we’re announcing locations, speakers etc. via the Meetup platform.
For our kick-off in Amsterdam, we’re lucky to be sponsored by booking.com and we’ll be hosting the meetup in their offices.
We look forward to seeing you there and to the polyglot discussions ahead!
