“A DBA walks into a NoSQL bar…” (bar joke)

“A guy walks into a bar...” is a typical form of what has been called the “bar joke.” A version of the joke for web developers is:

“A DBA (database administrator) walks into a NoSQL bar, but turns and leaves because he couldn’t find a table.”

The joke was popularized on Twitter by Erlend Oftedal on September 12, 2011. “3 DBAs walk into a NoSQL bar. A little while later they walk out because they couldn’t find a table” was cited on Twitter on March 22, 2012.


Wikipedia: NoSQL
A NoSQL (originally referring to “non SQL” or “non relational") database provides a mechanism for storage and retrieval of data which is modeled in means other than the tabular relations used in relational databases. Such databases have existed since the late 1960s, but did not obtain the “NoSQL” moniker until a surge of popularity in the early twenty-first century, triggered by the needs of Web 2.0 companies such as Facebook, Google and Amazon.com.
