And when new resource type added, we either add a new column to the table. Or it means we merge all resource information into a single column as json string and parse it in the resource tracker object?.

You're right, it's not really achievable without moving to a schemaless 
persistence model.  I'm fairly certain it was added to be humorous and 
should not be considered an outcome of that session.
