Announcing December 14th Webinar: What Should I Do? Choosing SQL, NoSQL Or Both For Scalable Web Applications

The number of database options facing developers these days is almost overwhelming. In response, the number one question I get at HighScalability.com is: "What should I do?"

Should I go neo-traditional and stay with MySQL and memcached? How can I scale like Facebook without cost or effort? Should I use a graph, key-value, relational, or document data model? Should I deploy in the cloud or in a colo? What consistency model should I use? Can I use transactions anymore? Can I make queries anymore? Who programs these things? Who support these things?

And that's just a start. It can all be so very confusing. In the past there was a standard set of options. A few popular relational databases ruled and your job as a programmer was to force the square peg of your problem into the round hole of the relational database. Not anymore.

In this webinar what I hope to do is help you figure out how to answer the "What should I do" question for yourself, like what I try to do in my blog, only more conversational. We'll take a use case approach. I promise we won't spend 20 minutes on CAP or other eyes-glazing-over topics. We'll try to look at what you need to do and use your requirements to figure out which product, or more likely, set of products to use.
