Testing Bottle and MongoDB

February 3, 2010

Notes about Redis

January 31, 2010

I’ve come up with some notes about Redis, RestMQ and mongodb. Uploaded them to slideshare.

Yesterday I’ve presented this at Locaweb/Brazil as part of our NoSQL cycle. Many other people presented interesting new ideas and I’ve opted for this intro and a piece about Redis which I may publish soon.
