In Part 2 of this tutorial (which you can attend even if you did not attend Part 1), you will learn the differences in the physical data models in each type of SQL and NoSQL database and how that makes a huge difference in what each database can do. You will understand the strengths and weaknesses of relational, dimensional, wide-column, document, key-value, and graph data models.
You will be able to choose the best type of data model to meet your specific needs, and better understand key arguments around NoSQL, such as joins are no longer needed, multiple types of NoSQL databases are needed for each project, open source is free, and popularity is the best way to choose a NoSQL database.
