The source code (and slides in the Downloads section) for my talk "Persistence Smoothie: Blending SQL and NoSQL"
Branch: master


Persistence Smoothie

This application is a Rails 3 example of a combination of SQL and NoSQL systems in a single application presented during the talk Persistence Smoothie: Blending SQL and NoSQL given at Confoo 2010 as well as RubyNation 2010. It represents a simple storefront with some social features and utilizes MySQL, Redis, and MongoDB all within the same application.

Obviously this is demoware and was constructed in just a few hours. There are some rake tasks for pulling some data in from Amazon and it is generally brittle and untested code. Enjoy!
