Andrew Morrow (MongoDB)
MongoDB is the next-generation database that helps businesses transform their industries by harnessing the power of data. The world’s most sophisticated organizations, from cutting-edge startups to the largest companies, use MongoDB to create applications never before possible at a fraction of the cost of traditional databases.
This talk will review the feature set of MongoDB and the history and rationale behind those features, including BSON, the document model, replication, and database sharding. MongoDB’s feature set represents a particular set of trade-offs, and the advantages and disadvantages of those trade-offs will be considered in the context of various use cases.
