Topeka Dot Net User Group (DNUG) Meeting - August 20th, 2009

Topeka DNUG is free for anyone to attend! Mark your calendars now!



 Dru Sellers is the Solution Architect for Federal Home Loan Bank in Topeka, KS. He has been programming professionally for over 8 years and spends most of his time in C# and VB.Net, Castle, and junk punches people who 'touch' his database.


Object Oriented Databases and other non-relational options

Are you tired of writing SQL to maintain your databases? Are you using an object relational mapper and sick of the mapping? If you are then Dru would like to introduce you to the world of ‘NO MORE SQL’. It's an amazing world where objects are saved magically and still queryable.

In this talk Dru will be reviewing 'db4o' a free object database as well as a way to use the open source search engine 'Lucene.Net' as an object store as well. Dru will also discuss how some large corporations are switching away from traditional Relational databases to achieve unheard of performance.
