Recently, Yelp made available a sample dataset from the greater Phoenix metropolitan area including around 11.000 business, 8000 checkin-sets, 43.000 users and 230.000 user reviews. With the help of this data, data scientists can execute real-life experiments with various data mining/machine learning algorithms.

Recently, I’ve started implementing a number of Redis-based solutions for a Datablend customer. Redis is frequently referred to as the Swiss Army Knife of NoSQL databases and rightfully deserves that title. At its core, it is an in-memory key-value datastore.
