A closer look at Amazon DynamoDB

Cloud and Virtualization
23 April 4:50pm - 5:40pm @ Ballroom H

This session will focus on DynamoDB, a fast, scalable, durable NoSQL service by AWS.
We will explore the basic concepts of designing a Database on DynamoDB, and why its features are important for real world scenarios.
It will be a technical session, and some basic knowledge of NoSQL concepts is strongly recommended.
Some of the examples will be in Python language, but knowledge of Python is not necessary.
