Databases
Let’s say you’ve decided to set up a website or an application. You'll obviously need something to manage the data. Yes, that's right, a database. So, what is it going to be? MySQL, MS-SQL, Oracle or PostgreSQL? After all, nothing can be as amazing as a good old RDBMS that employs SQL to manage the data.

Well, allow me to introduce to you an entirely unique and unconventional Database model - NoSQL.

Calling NoSQL "a type of database" is about as accurate as calling atheism "a religion".


Well, it does seem like quite a few atheists practice it with an almost religious zeal and elitism.


I always hate seeing people lumping key-value stores, hierarchical databases, document-oriented databases, and everything else under the sun that isn't SQL-based under one term


Why? That's what they are. Relational, object-oriented, key-value, hierarchical etc etc are all different types of databases.
