You all have seen many changes in the technology landscape during the innovation of mobile apps. It started with nearly 500 or less now cross the millions mark.  As languages, platforms, and styles have come and gone one thing, above all else, has gone on.

Come join our meetup we look at mobile data usage trends. And navigate through many options currently available for wrangling it all. In the meetup, we will learn deeply on two main database options: SQL and NoSQL.


You know very well SQL and NoSQL are the most popular database. SQL is a standard language for accessing and manipulating databases. Most of the SQL database programs have their own proprietary extensions in addition to the SQL standard.

NoSQL is a class of database management systems but do not follow all rules of relational DBMS and cannot use traditional SQL to query data. High scalability and high availability are the main advantages of NoSQL.

Important points of this event are,

When to use them to solve business-critical problems in mobile?
What is the best database for mobile apps?
How do I make a database for a mobile application?

The reason behind this meetup?

In this meetup, you will learn about two main database options: SQL and NoSQL. As developers we know when it comes to technology options there’s no big thing but you might be surprised how invalid the SQL vs. NoSQL debate is as it pertains to mobile. Here will discuss on it.
