MongoDB seems like a great idea. But when it comes to building an application, we may start to miss all those patterns familiar to us from relational databases. Where are my joins? How do I handle polymorphic associations? Here, we'll examine a dozen ideas for working the MongoDB way, including plenty of code examples. These techniques will highlight the unique features of the database, among them atomic updates, map/reduce, and the notion of embedded documents. We'll also consider the hard questions, including how to achieve durability, plan for scale, and reassure our relational-database-oriented brethren of the viability of a document database like MongoDB. You'll come away with a good sense for the surprises and joys of building apps in MongoDB.
