This webinar introduces its audience to the basic concepts behind MongoDB and how it fits into the present day Ruby eco-system. We’ll cover the basics of getting started with MongoDB and move on to a short introduction to using the MongoDB Ruby driver as well as an introduction to a number of different tools, ODMs and libraries designed to help you seamlessly bring MongoDB into your Ruby applications. This webinar is not an introduction to Ruby itself and it does assume some level of familiarity with Ruby, but will otherwise be a very beginner friendly presentation.
