If we group them by decades it looks like this:
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 & Fowle…

are having an N+1 scenario or feeling a pain with references, you should
