The latest M03 milestone release of Neo4j 2.0 is as you expected all about improvements to Cypher.
One of the nice things about having more realistic demo data set is that we can now actually show demos on that data.
Being schemaless doesn't mean you will never have to migrate data between the implicit schemas with which data is represented inside NoSQL databases such as MongoDB. Even when leaving in place code that works with multiple versions of data and provide a smooth transition between the old and new formats, indexes provide an example of operation to be performed once and for all and that is mostly put outside of the code the database supports.
In the wake of last Tuesday's Neo4j 1.9 GA release, the Neo4j community released a number of dependent ecosystem projects for Neo4j 1.9 to the Neo4j Maven repository
For a year and a half I've been part of the team maintaining PyMongo, the Python MongoDB driver. It's one of the most widely used Python packages with 1.5 million lifetime downloads.
For RavenDB 2.5, we updated the sample data to use the brand new and amazing (wait for it…) Northwind database.
There's a lot of bad advice out there regarding MongoDB. As I wrote in my last review, even smart sources can encourage risky methods.
RAM is much faster than hard disks. For example, we gained X7 performance boost when we used MySQL In Memory engine rather than InnoDB engine.
I was chatting with Brian Blignaut last week after the Equal Experts NoSQL event and he made an interesting observation that in this age of Polyglot Persistence we often rule out the relational database.

Graph Databases have long been the realm of highly technical IT development professionals.
This video from 2011 may be a little old, but it offers a strong overview of the features of Apache Cassandra.
In this post i will explain how can we interact with data residing in MongoDB using .Net.
You’ll be seeing much more from me in the way of me introducing new innovative features in upcoming releases, how we build NuoDB . . .

Sharding is generally done for one or both of two reasons: To increase I/O bandwidth, and to partition in-memory data for more efficient usage of distributed caching
