DynamoDB is a managed NoSQL database service from AWS. It is widely used as a transactional database to fulfill key-value and wide-column data models. In a previous show with Rick Houlihan, we explored how to build a data model and optimize the query patterns for a NoSQL database.
Today’s show is about DynamoDB specifically: partitioning, indexing, query semantics, normalization, table design, and other subjects. We talk through how to be cost conscious, and how to integrate with event-based AWS Lambda triggers.
Alex DeBrie is the author of The DynamoDB Book, a book whose title speaks for itself. Alex has comprehensive experience with DynamoDB, and he joins the show to share that experience through a detailed discussion of use cases and strategies related to DynamoDB.
