Take 60 minutes to understand the Power of the Actor Model with "Designing Reactive Systems: The Role Of Actors In Distributed Architecture". Brought to you in partnership with Lightbend.

NoSQL has been a pretty hot topic over the last few years. There are a number of contenders in the NoSQL world - MongoDB, Cassandra, Couch, Riak etc. These are just the main ones, with a number of other contenders. I have also deliberately not included the "NewSQL" databases in the list. All the above vendors are doing some very interesting things with distributed, highly scalable nosql databases. But how are they doing overall? I've been meaning to build a NoSQL database trends report over the past few weeks. Today I finally got around to building a simple report on Google trends. Here are the results.
