There has been a lot of buzz in the development community concerning no SQL databases. That’s right a database used to persist data for an application that involves no SQL period. How does this work? How do I construct tables or even perform basic CRUD operations with out SQL? The answer is you don’t. RavenDB is a schema free database with no concept of tables and rows or mappings or the typical stuff that goes with SQL server or MySQL and so on. It is a place you can simply dump your application objects into and easily access later. This alone saves a good deal of time.
