Over 2,000 devs gathered at NHN 2012 DEVIEW. What have you missed?

Annually since 2008 NHN, the company behind CUBRID open source RDBMS, holds DEVIEW conference at the capital city of Korea to share the knowledge it has accumulated for past 13 years.

This year DEVIEW was held on September 17 at COEX Grand Ballroom where over 2,000 software developers and IT specialists have gathered. Many influential Korean and foreign Tech companies joined hands with NHN to share their ideas and insights of new technologies they are deploying at their services.


The number of international participants in DEVIEW 2012 surpassed that of last year. There were 42 speakers from companies like Amazon, Couchbase, Heroku, Intel, LinkedIn, Nvidia, Twitter, Facebook, Google and many others.

At the conference on behalf of our CUBRID team Lee Donghyun presented "Is NoSQL the only answer for processing large data? Consider using CUBRID." In his presentation Donghyun talked about various use cases practiced at NHN which leverage RDBMS' advantageous features such as transactions and data stability while still being able to process large data. In particular, the presentation explained how to use various powerful features in CUBRID to handle large amounts of data.
