You will learn about NoSQL jargon, data models, and databases on the market. The case studies and comparisons presented will help you to make a decision on whether or not to use NoSQL, and if so which model and product to use. This book is an indispensable resource for you to have in your library. You will learn everything you need to know about understanding and working with NoSQL and how to implement an application with the correct NoSQL for you.
