Slides

In this session, we'll examine schema design insights and trade-offs using real world examples. We'll look at three example applications: building an email inbox, selecting a shard key for a large scale web application, and using MongoDB to store user profiles. From these examples you should leave the session with an idea of the advantages and disadvantages of various approaches to modeling your data in MongoDB. Attendees should be well versed in basic schema design and familiar with concepts in the morning's basic schema design talk. No beginner topics will be covered in this session.
