I have been coding for more than thirty years. Since the Orwellian year of 1984 and I recall data storage being such a conundrum. Each platform had its own OS level file structure. Then came ISAM, indices and keys were added to file records. Relational databases came before the turn of the century and made things a bit faster, but each one(Paradox, Btrieve, FoxPro, et cetera) handled things a bit differently. SQL was truly a revelation to data interfacing, so when I was faced with NoSQL I was baffled.

Why are we going backward? Why is this being embraced? Each one of these NoSQL animals has its own proprietary language. How is this good, no matter the speed? I was informed that I was too old to understand. Thanks
