Rapid Development with Schemaless Data Models

At MyEdu, we've been using MongoDB for a little over a year now for our student profile in our Academic Platform. Since this is a realatively new and continuously changing product, one of the biggest benefits has been the schemaless datamodel. Using MongoDB has saved us in both development and deployment time and allowed us to create a more fluid architecture for our application. In this talk, we'll discuss the different data model iterations from where we began with MongoDB to where we are going in the future, the insights we made and how we've benefitted from it since the implementation.
