Hello and welcome to my first post, let’s dive right in! Over the last six months I have been creating end-user trainings for two NoSQL databases, Riak KV and Riak TS. It has been an interesting journey and I am excited to formalize a few thoughts. To begin, we will discuss the difference between SQL and NoSQL. I will then provide some context about my familiarity with databases. Finally we will dive into some details about what I’ve learned regarding Riak KV and Riak TS.
