NoSQL databases threw out SQL for querying, while their authors focused on solving problems on scale, speed and availability. The trouble is, the need for rich query never went away. Neither did SQL; it was only resting. Today, non-relational databases are bringing back SQL-like languages and other query mechanisms to help them integrate with existing data query layers (e.g. Hibernate) and to fit in with the overwhelming weight of database query practice of the past 40 years. In this talk I’ll cover how to query data in Couchbase using a SQL like query language called N1QL (Nickel) from .NET. I will also touch on topics like installing, setup, hosting, cloud, azure and perfomance. Demo's will be in C#, but there are SDK's and API’s for all the major languages, therefor if you don’t have a .NET background you can still use what you learn in your favourite language.
