Deep Dive into Databases

GDG Cloud Philly
Thu, Apr 26, 2018, 6:30 PM (EDT)

About this event

Welcome to the inaugural GDG Cloud Philly meetup! Were super excited to host our first event and grow a community of knowledge around cloud technologies.

In this meetup we delve through the plethora of cloud database options available. We will explore common use cases, interactions, performance, scalability, and cost of each database option. Some of the databases we'll be covering:

Open Source Databases:

- MySQL + MariaDB
- PostgreSQL
- MongoDB
- CockroachDB

Vendor Proprietary Databases:

- Cloud Spanner
- Cloud Datastore
- Cloud BigTable
- Firebase
- Cloud FireStore
- DynamoDB
- Aurora
- CosmosDB

If there is another database that you would like to learn more about (like graph databases or in-memory stores), shoot us a message and we'll add it in to the discussion.

By the end of the event we hope to arm you with the ability to decide what database (or databases) are a good choice for any kind of project.

Food and beverages will be provided with vegetarian/vegan options. If you have any dietary restrictions, please let us know ahead of time and we'll do our best to accommodate you.
