MongoDB is a scalable, high-performance, open-source, document-oriented database. It merges the speed of a key-value store, and the feature set of an RDBMS, but it isn't all puppies and rainbows. This talk will cut through the hype, and go over some of the fundamentals of Mongo, and then go into some of the more interesting features. We'll then go over problem scenarios where Mongo really shines, and then some of the gotchyas and trade offs you'll encounter. You'll leave the session with a better understanding of when you should be using Mongo (and when you shouldn't), allowing you to make informed decisions on your next project.
