Domain modelling and persistence appear to be at odds with each other, no matter which persistence store you use. Over the years practices have been developed for storing a model in a relational database using ORM frameworks like Hibernate, and various design patterns to help mitigate a number of issues. Not all of these translate very well when using one of the NoSQL persistence stores however. In this blog I will describe a situation we recently came across when working with a model we have to store in Riak. I will detail the model, the typical relational solution in Riak and what alternatives you may want to consider to better work with the strengths and weaknesses of Riak.

Are you frustrated by growing data requirements and interested in how non-relational databases could help? Curious about where and how NoSQL systems are being deployed? Want to build a “real” Highly Scalable System? Well if you answered yes to any of these questions you’re not the only one who wants to know more. For this very reason we’ve decided to team up with some of the best NoSQL experts and bring to you the NoSQL Roadshow Amsterdam. It’s been a great success in Stockholm, Copenhagen, Zurich & Basel and hence the roadtrip continues in Amsterdam and thereafter in London.
This informative and intensive 1 day session with 10 presentations is designed to give you an overview of the changing landscape around data management highlighted by concepts like “Big Data” and NoSQL databases, that are based on non-traditional, sometimes non-relational, other times very relational data models. The NoSQL Roadshow aims at IT professionals who are interested in faster and cheaper solutions to managing fast growing amounts of data.
After introducing the landscape and the business problems, you will learn how to attack these growing issues and hear first-hand how organisations were able to solve their modern data problems with innovative solutions like Neo4j, Riak, MongoDB, Cassandra, and many more.
NoSQL Roadshow Amsterdam is also a excellent opportunity for CIOs, CTOs, developers and NoSQL ambassadors to meet and discuss their own experiences with NoSQL – across industries and it’s centrally located at the Pakhuis de Zwijger in the centre of the city.

Yes, GOTO Amsterdam is back! Our first software development conference co-organized with Trifork last year proved a winning success. We had over 225 attendees, 50% of which were developers and 77% of which were based in the Netherlands; as discussed in my past GOTO retrospect, this event was a huge success and very well received….the KPI measured in number of beers consumed in 48 hours rocked well over the 650 mark!
Because of its success, we have decided to go ahead and schedule the next GOTO Amsterdam. Save the dates for this year: May 24th & 25th 2012, with more details about the program to follow in the upcoming weeks.

The popular free GOTO nights will be back too, with the first one scheduled for Thursday 26th January hosted by Marktplaats in Amsterdam. This event will include an open space brainstorm session to allow for your input, but also feature a special presentation from Jørn Larsen featuring a case study “Riak on Drugs (and the other way around)”.
Registration is open, so sign up today!
