The Key to Becoming a (Well-Rested) App Dev Rockstar - Glynn Bird, IBM
For developers who have tapped into the power of open source technology, a question of reliability has to be front-of-mind. When the database doesn’t run, the business doesn’t run. It’s that simple. Harnessing the power of open source technology without the proper support, guidance and documentation leaves the data layer vulnerable, and developers exposed to sleepless hours of database maintenance.
