I’ve been discussing the “schemaless” view of NoSQL with some fellow developers and have been tweeting a bit about it and yesterday I started to read a new book: “NoSQL Distilled – A brief guide to the emerging world of polygot persistence, Pramod J.Sadalage & Martin Fowler (2013)” (Sadalage & Fowler 2013). So far I really appreciate it and I’ve extracted two sentences from the book that I think is really informative and clear when it comes to schemas and NoSQL:
“… whenever we write a program that accesses data, that program almost always relies on some form of implicit schema” – (Sadalage & Fowler 2013)
“Essentially, a schemaless database shifts the schema into the application code that accesses it.” – (Sadalage & Fowler 2013)
