Justin Hileman and I gave a presentation on “Augmenting RDBMS with NoSQL for e-commerce” at the PgEast 2011 conference. This presentation is really the sequel (no pun intended) to my presentation, MongoDB & Ecommerce : A Perfect Combination. This presentation takes you through how we created a hybrid solution blending both sql and nosql to achieve an optimal solution.
Our colleague at OpenSky, Jon Wage, pioneered this technique. To learn more about creating cross-database-platform relations with Doctrine ORM and ODM, check out Jon Wage’s excellent blog post on the subject or the first half his recent talk at Symfony Live.
