NoSQL databases, though popular for app engineering, may not always be the best choice due to complexity and technical limitations. In this session, MemSQL CEO Eric Frenkiel will show how to make SQL flexible to achieve the speed, scale, and simplicity needed to create applications in the modern database landscape.

This session will also feature a brief overview of MemSQL and will debunk some of the common myths around NoSQL databases such as MongoDB.

Eric Frenkiel co-founded MemSQL and has served as CEO since inception. Before MemSQL, Eric worked at Facebook on partnership development. He has worked in various engineering and sales engineering capacities at both consumer and enterprise startups. Eric is a graduate of Stanford University's School of Engineering. In 2011 and 2012, Eric was named to Forbes’ 30 under 30 list of technology innovators.
