In this episode I'm joined by Jonathan Casarrubias, owner of the website, where we discuss the MongoDB, Express Framework, Angular, and Node (MEAN) development stack. The MEAN stack is a very popular development stack, not only because it is quick, but because development is very easy. After all, each technology in the stack has some JavaScript background. Learn about how to get started and why its more convenient than RDBMS alternative stacks.


NDP015: Cassandra and the Tabular Database

In this episode I am joined by previous guest, Tim Berglund, from DataStax, where we discuss the NoSQL database Cassandra and how it fits versus the alternatives and relational databases. Cassandra is a tabular database, sometimes referred to as a column database, something different than the previous database types discussed on the show.
