MongoDB's ability to embed arrays and subdocuments inside a document allowed for ACID-compliance, and fast writes before transactions were available. Since MongoDB 4.2, transactions are now available across documents, collections, databases and shards, how do you know if transactions are the right solution for your application?

In this session you'll learn about the problems that transactions solve, their limitations, when transactions are not the best solution, and the optimal use of transactions in production.
