Wednesday Morning Coffee Sponsor: Speedment

A special thanks goes to Speedment for sponsoring last week's Wednesday Morning Coffee at Breadtalk.  Speedment is an open source Object Relational Mapper (ORM).  An ORM makes it easy for Object oriented programmers and programs to persist objects to a traditional SQL database.  Speedment is an accelerated ORM.  So aside from simplifying the database mapping,  Speedment speeds up query response times.  It's also a graph database,so it specializes in large datasets, and excels with data where relationships between nodes are queried.


This little hare is Spire, the Speedment mascot.  I've installed Speedment several times, and it's very effective for projects where there will be lot's of queries on your data, and where relationships are important.   It's a honor to have a company that understands the importance of relationships sponsor our coffee.
