Thesis, Finally!


I’m feeling old now. Lol. Finally I will do my thesis writing. Time flies so fast. Actually, Fasilkom let me graduate just by taking some course and get 144 credits, but I choose the hard way (don’t ask me why). :’)

This afternoon I met Mrs Ika to consult the topic of my thesis. She offer me a topic about NoSQL. Wow, what kind of food is that? Well, it is a new kind of paradigm about database. Some people think that typical relational database cannot meet their needs for big data. It is not scalable and have bad performance in some cases.

So, I accept her offer and I will do research about NoSQL. Yeeaay!

She told me to explore this new technology before go deeper to the research. I have to choose which database that I will use in my research since NoSQL has many option, like MongoDB, Cassandra, Hadoop, CouchDB, etc. Ok, it’s a little bit geek here, let’s forget it. :p

From now, I have to decide what is become my focus in this thesis. I think Mrs Ika want to prove the advantage of using NoSQL compared with the relational database. Well, I think I can focus on performace or scalability. Which one will I choose? I don’t know. I have to do my research first. 😉

So, this is the beginning of my journey. I hope I can finish it on time and graduate next july. Wish me luck! 😀
