"We couldn't have hoped for a better lineup at NoSQL Live in Boston," said Dwight Merriman, co-founder and CEO of 10gen. "Attendees will hear firsthand from NoSQL experts who are actively transforming the promise of highly scalable, high performance databases that solve real business problems into a reality."

Session topics at NoSQL Live will include scaling with NoSQL, NoSQL in the cloud, schema design with document-oriented databases, the evolution of graph data structure from research to production, the enterprise adoption of NoSQL, and toward web standards for NoSQL.
