• What we'll do

Moving from the world of relational databasing to NoSQL can be a daunting task. The move from flat tables with transactions to document storage with eventual consistency is a big mental paradigm shift.

We'll discuss the pros and cons of making the leap to NoSQL, helping you understand the kinds of projects it's right for. We'll also briefly cover some of the various NoSQL options for a .NET developer, including MongoDB and Couchbase.

Next, we'll go through a SQL Server to Couchbase mindmap, comparing how various concepts we're used to in the SQL Server world map to Couchbase concepts and JSON documents. This will include N1QL, Couchbase's ANSI SQL-based query language and how it enables you to query your JSON documents quickly and easily.

Finally, we'll go through a coding example as we build an ASP.NET Core microservice backed by Couchbase.
