This meetup is about "open source, distributed, non relational databases".
Have you run into limitations with traditional relational databases? Don't mind trading a query language for scalability? Or perhaps you just like shiny new things to try out? Either way this meetup is for you.
Join us in figuring out why these newfangled Dynamo clones and BigTables have become so popular lately. We have gathered presenters from the most interesting projects around to give us all an introduction to the field.

When & Where
The meetup is already sold out! Only took five hours to fill 100 seats!
For those of you who didn't get a ticket in time I will see if it's possible to add some more, no promises though. Keep an eye on the event page.
I have also added one more presentation to the list, Chris Anderson will talk about CouchDB. There is also a small slot for lightning talks. This means the event will go on for one more hour.
After a couple of emails back and forth we can now squeeze in another 50 attendees! The tickets will go fast, so sign up now!
In other news Digg will sponsor a round of beer at Kate O'briens after the meetup!
If you have already signed up but won't be able to make it, please let us know! There are a lot of people that would like to come.

Thanks everyone for making it a great meetup!
