Episode 23: “It’s like a giant trashcan where you dump your data and get it back out.”: a conversation with Keith Smith

we are currently working to improve the audio player. Please check back.

This week Lionel and Jim talk with Keith Smith, longtime friend of Jim and Lead Engineer at MongoDB. We talk about Jim's misconceptions of noSQL databases (see the title) as well as Gotham and the history of New York City including a little bit about Peter Cooper Village and Stuyvesant Town where Jim and Keith grew up. Keith is a fantastic guy and we were glad to have him on to talk super-nerdy with us and clear things up a bit.
