Relational + JSON: have your cake and eat it too

Session en anglais - Intermédiaire

JSON is the de facto standard for web and mobile applications, but more often than not, data is neither 100% structured nor 100% semi-structured. With JSON supported in relational databases, we can move to hybrid relational/JSON data models. In this session, we’ll discuss when and where it makes sense to use JSON in a relational database, and walk through 20+ code examples showing how to create and query a hybrid relational/JSON data model.
