About the Webinar

MongoDB — from “humongous” — is an open source, non-relational, document-oriented database. Trading off a few traditional features of databases (notably joins and transactions) in order to achieve much better performance, MongoDB is fast, scalable, and designed for web development. The goal of the MongoDB project is to bridge the gap between key-value stores (which are fast and highly scalable) and traditional RDBMS systems (which provide rich queries and deep functionality).

MongoDB has been designed for versatility, but the techniques you might use to build, say, an analytics engine or a hierarchical data store might not be obvious. In this talk, we’ll learn about MongoDB in practice by looking at four hypothetical application designs (based on real-world designs, of course). Topics to be covered include schema design, indexing, transactions (gasp!), trees, what’s fast, and what’s not. Sprinkled with tips, tricks, shoots, ladders, and trap doors, you’re guaranteed to learn something new in this interdisciplinary talk.
