The Aggregation Framework

Rick Houlihan

June 25, 2014

MongoDB offers two native data processing tools: MapReduce and the Aggregation Framework. MongoDB’s built-in aggregation framework is a powerful tool for performing analytics and statistical analysis in real-time and generating pre-aggregated reports for dashboarding. In this session, we will demonstrate how to use the aggregation framework for different types of data processing including ad-hoc queries, pre-aggregated reports, and more. At the end of this talk, you should walk aways with a greater understanding of the built-in data processing options in MongoDB and how to use the aggregation framework in your next project.
