This tutorial will provide an in-depth tutorial on various forms of NOSQL (NotOnlySQL) datastores (key/value, data structure store, document store and wide column stores) for working with semi- structured data. The data ranges from web logs to social and knowledge graphs to configuration data stores for cloud infrastructures and other domains.

NOTE: As a part of the NOSQL Tutorial, there will be hands on exercise based on a data cloud hosted in Amazon EC2. Amazon has sent us credit vouchers for $25 which we will give out at the beginning of the tutorial. But you should have an aws account before the start of the tutorial, otherwise we might spend time in setup. So please go to the Amazon EC2 page. Click “Sign up for Amazon EC2” button and follow the on-screen instructions.
