PgWest 2010: Anticipated talk, How To Say Yes To NoSQL: Using Redis With Postgres

There has been a lot of talk lately about this idea of "NoSQL". A lot of database traditionalists have been very down on the idea that something else is a better way to extract and store data. I have been in SQL land for so long that I can't even form a credible opinion on the matter. I know that SQL (for the most part) is logical. It makes sense for the paradigm in which it is used.

I also know that programmers who don't really know anything about databases have been trying to "fix" them for decades only to eventually come back to earth and realize our way is the best way (thus why all your decent ORMs now support natural keys). Redis has a lot of momentum. I look forward to seeing what they have to offer.
