This one’s for you, Cliff.

Don’t forget to lean into it.

A seasonal, worldwide reading club for databases, distributed systems & NOSQL-related scientific papers.

Currently featuring 1133 participants in 39 cities, from 20 different countries on 5 continents.
139 meetings (and counting) since June 3, 2010!

A NOSQL Summer is a network of local reading groups, that will decipher & discuss NOSQL-related articles, from late June to early September 2010. Each group sets its own meeting pace (usually once a week or once every two weeks) and select which papers are up for discussion.

At every cycle, members read the selected paper at home and then meet up for an hour or so to discuss, debate and answer their own questions.

We then encourage you to produce an annotated version of the paper, or short summary that we can then publish here for the rest of world to peruse.

Please note that, in most cities, you do not need to sign up to attend NOSQL Summer meetings. You just need to have read the paper planned for the week by your local chapter and show up at the designated meeting place!

Feel free to skip a meeting or jump in at any time. We’re trying to make this low-maintenance and flexible, for everybody to get a chance to learn more about a fuzzy concept that’s here to stay.

A few things you can do...

Propose a paper

Uh-oh. Did we forget something? If you think there's a research paper we have to know about, then bring it to our attention at [email protected]

Please don’t forget to give us the full name of the paper, a link to a PDF or HTML version of it and why you think it’s important.
