A filmed
compilation of interviews, explanations &
case studies

As watched by over 44000 people from 150 countries around the world!


Hi, My name is Tim Anglade. In 2010, I organized a NOSQL Summer – a worldwide network of user groups devoted to non-relational databases and distributed systems. As it drew to a close, I enrolled the help of Scality and InfiniteGraph, and embarked on a 77-day Tour around the World from Paris to New York, Boston, Chicago, Seattle, San Francisco, Tokyo, Rome, Berlin, Malmö & London. At each stop I met & interviewed NOSQL creators, users & thought-leaders — and organized or participated in, a, few, events. The resulting videos are assembled here.

Here’s to hoping you’ll have as much fun watching them as I had putting them together.

Don’t know where to start? Here are the top 4 most-viewed tapes:


Many thanks to all the interviewees for their time, and for graciously welcoming me in their offices (or their homes). Thanks to all the people I met who made me feel like a local, even half-way around the world. I am eternally indebted to to Shinya Motohashi, Thomas Krafft, Tim Lossen and Bradford Stephens for the organization of local events and the time they spent showing me the ropes in their respective communities.
Some interviews previously advertised here could not be published due to technical or editorial issues: Amr Awadallah & John Kreisa (Hadoop/Cloudera), Harry Heyman (MongoDB at Foursquare), Jan Lehnardt (Document Modeling), Nick Quaranto & Joe Ferris (NOSQL at Thoughtbot), and Alfredo Nulli (NOSQL in the Enterprise and in Europe) – sincere apologies to them and those who expected to see them on tape.
The tapes would not have been possible without the financial, logistical and (sometimes, emotional) support of my sponsors, Scality and InfiniteGraph. My heart goes out to them and in particular Giorgio, Thomas, Aline, Marc and Elizabeth.
The NOSQL Tapes are over for now, but please feel free to reach out if you have any questions or ideas for me! You can email me at [email protected]. Cheers!
