Meet up

The Triumph of Simplicity: how database complexity will be replaced by simple services

Thursday, 7th November in London

This meetup was organised by Skills Matter In The Brain in November 2013

Overview

The Triumph of Simplicity

Dijkstra once said that "complexity sells better." While this may be the case in the short run, long run trends appear to counter this. Over the past 5 years cloud computing has gained such traction that the idea of a startup buying servers is laughable. What had formerly been done with hardware is now done simply with software, and further what is done with software is now done easily by services.

At the same time a plethora of new databases have emerged to fill a host of storage and querying niches. While in general IT operations have gotten easier, less labour intensive, and cheaper, the operations of databases have not.
