From 0 to 60 MPH with AWS DynamoDB and Heroku
This will be a technical presentation covering DynamoDB, a scalable, managed Database in the Cloud. DynamoDB follows the NoSQL paradigm, and offers unmatched performances by using Solid State Disks and replication, allowing users to tune the performance at the level they want. We will start with a quick introduction to DynamoDB, and then dive deeper with some cool demos and examples, including connecting an App from Heroku to DynamoDB. The speaker assumes that the audience has at least some familiarity with NoSQL databases, API calls, the Heroku platform, and Web Services.
