Now is the time to learn MongoDB, which is quickly emerging as “winner of the next generation NoSQL database wars,” according to David Kellogg, former CEO of MarkLogic who says that due to “increasing returns in platform markets” the MongoDB community is growing exponentially. And
“the more people that use a database, the richer the community of people…the more jobs there are around it, which attracts more people to learn how to use it…[and] the more likely major universities are to teach how to use it in their computer science departments”.
