MySQL is a relational database engine, giving you the full capabilities of the SQL language. It also implies you are subjected to relational data model limitations, without the more fluid document-based model abilities of some NoSQL solutions.
At least that used to be true! Recent improvements in MySQL 5.7 allow the use of MySQL as a relational database engine with the power of SQL, AND as a document store with a CRUD interface and dynamic schema – or as both models working together on the same data.
This presentation explores the powerful new NoSQL features of MySQL 5.7, and provides examples of how you can put them to use in your applications.
