How do YOU learn NoSQL (not MongoDB)?

I am looking for,

  • Fast joins
  • Transactions / save points
  • Time logging
  • Offline syncing

Also, to expand my knowledge, and allow storage of more types of data; perhaps geojson and timestamp.

This SO answer describes it better than I can however you don't learn NoSQL. NoSQL is just a term used to describe a type of database.

Hey! I'm not sure how it'll apply to your specific project, but I really recommend looking into Firestore, a service through Firebase. They've got a really generous free teir, and it supports everything you have listed out of the box, with little to no configuration for you to do!
I started using it for my current app, and I wish I had of started using it sooner!

What can't SQL do? What do you expect from NoSQL? What is your Use Case?
