Getting Started with JSON Document Collections in the Autonomous JSON Database
In this session, I’ll introduce you to the Autonomous JSON Database (AJD). AJD is exciting because it represents the very first time we are offering a dedicated solution for JSON document collection persistence in the Oracle Cloud. It represents our commitment to offering developers tools and solutions that help them solve the problems they face when developing microservices and applications instead of trying to convince them to use a tool that might not be the best fit for them. Like all good solutions, it is scalable and adaptable which means that it can transform into a full-blown Autonomous Transaction Processing database if your needs dictate that in the future. We’ll get hands on in this session and I’ll show you how to launch a new AJD instance and immediately persist and retrieve JSON documents and collections via SQLcl. I’ll also show you how to use the SODA module for Node.JS to work with your AJD instance. Of course, you’re not limited to just Node.JS - we also offer SODA packages for Java, Python, C, REST and PL/SQL so you can choose the package that best fits your needs.

Todd Sharp
Todd Sharp, Developer Advocate    
I'm a Developer Advocate for Oracle focusing on the Oracle Cloud and Cloud Databases. I have 16 years experience as a full stack developer. I've been working with Java and dynamic JVM languages as well as various JavaScript frameworks for my whole career. I'm obsessed with technology and programming and feel extremely lucky to get paid to do what I love every single day. When I'm not learning a new language, tool or framework I can usually be found volunteering at my local school working with the FLL Lego Robotics club, working on my barn automation project built with Raspberry Pi, tinkering with Arduinos or making new friends at a conference. I've been happily married to my lovely wife Rhonda for the past 18 years. We live in the beautiful Appalachian mountains of North Georgia with our 14-year-old daughter, 12-year-old son, 12 chickens, a potbelly pig, 2 dogs, and a cat.
