Lithium Mining, Sophia Matveeva, and Document Orientated Databases

Show Notes

This week we look at one of the major unexpected consequences of a move towards a net zero carbon future, mining for lithium. Battery technology, for the time being, involves rare and potentially hazardous materials which pose tricky questions when obtaining.

We have a fascinating chat with Sophia Matveeva of Tech for Non-Techies! Sophia talks us through her journey from outside of the world of tech to guiding non-techies in. We discuss the blockers between business and tech and how we can all aim for a better way of communicating.

As soon as you get the chance, be sure to check out the Tech for Non-Techies podcast!

Finally, we take a look at document orientated databases. We discuss what they are, what they're used for, how they differ from SQL and other contemporaries and how we use them at Atlas.
