NoSQL (or NOSQL -- Not Only SQL) is sometimes justly criticized for being too broad a category, but after thirty years of the relational database being the instinctive choice for data storage, publicizing the concept that One Size Does Not Fit All is a Good Thing. This talk will present some axes along which to evaluate database products, applied to some of today's popular NoSQL products. Read more.

We were fortunate this past year to develop two of the larger Django applications out there – in the span of 12 weeks: michaelmoore.com and Santa Fe Institute's santafe.edu. Between the two, these sites have multiple layers of memcached caching, multiple web servers and database servers, integrated site search (Lucene/SOLR and Google GSA), DjangoCMS, and integrations with iCal and Alfresco.

Database scalability means different things to different people. Vertical vs. Horizontal scaling? Federating vs. Sharding? Despite the labels database scalability tends to fall into a few common patterns that anyone can apply. In this talk we'll discuss factors for applying these patterns including the life-cycle of your database, how hardware affects your choices, and tools to help you on the way Read more.

Does Python have Design Patterns? You bet! Whatever the misguided meme going around is claiming to the contrary, every field of human endeavor has Patterns, and so of course does Python. This talk shows how and why, recapping what Patterns are all about, Design patterns in particular, and presenting examples of how they work best in Python, both singly and as part of a Language of Patterns.

Computers are getting wider, not faster. If you want your code to run faster, it has to have some parallelism. This is hard, and threads probably aren't the answer. There is a lot of new concurrency technology on the scene. This talk surveys the 2010 state of the art in tools to empower developers to write concurrent code, and makes some predictions. Read more.
