My DailyWeb 2011 presentation

I gave a talk at the DailyWeb 2011 conference. Here are my slides, in Slovak.

The talk was a short and fast introduction to NoSQL. It gives and overview of pros and cons of NoSQL systems and a cherry-picked summary of 4 concrete NoSQL products (MongoDB, Redis, Couchbase and Riak).

I’d like to thank the people behind DailyWeb and namely Daniela Hladíkova for inviting me to speak at this conference and for the profesional, flawless organization.

Attractive things work better

That’s right. People prefer beautiful things. Clean, simple, pretty
things. It even goes so far, that we are more tolerant about a
product’s flaws (functional wise) when it’s aesthetically pleasing.
Just think about the iPhone.
 
The aesthetics of a product influences how we sense it. Or, to
rephrase it, how we feel about something (emotion) is tightly coupled
with how we perceive it (cognition). To find out more, check the
slides
