Living in a Polyglot Data World

Level: 200
Andrew Karcher

10-15 years ago for most developers a database choice meant SQL Server or Oracle. Everything was relational and you generally had one choice. Today, your have almost endless choices. When you include options in the cloud it seems like there is a new option being introduced every month. Companies are using more and more databases every day. And this is a good thing!

Type Providers: making data first class

André van Meulebrouck

F# type providers provide types (at IDE and compile time) for data from diverse sources.  The type provider looks at a sample of your data, creates a schema for it, and then provides the types and fetching infrastructure for you.  I see this as a realization of Scheme's notions of first class citizenship, only this time for data.
