+##Who is Gora For?
+
+Gora is a framework primarily aimed towards

objects to and from
+  NoSQL technologies.
+* <b>Development and/or Testing Engineers</b> looking to quickly set up and deploy
applications on top of
+  Big Data storage mediums. This includes testing how applications are suited to underlying
data stores
+  as data stores are easily interchanged. 
+* Developers interested in <b>technology agnostic storage methods</a> for addressing
data storage tasks.
