Bryan Reinero, Software Engineer, MongoDB
Relational databases weren't designed to cope with the scale and agility challenges that face modern applications. MongoDB can offer scalability, performance and ease of use - but proper design will be a critical factor to that success. We'll take a dive into how MongoDB works to better understand what non-relational design is, why we might use it and what advantages it gives us. We'll develop schema designs by example, and consider strategies for scale out.
