Introduction to MongoDB

Mike Dirolf

November 11, 2011

MongoDB -- from "humongous" -- is an open source, non-relational, document database. The goal of the MongoDB project is to bridge the gap between key-value stores (which are fast and highly scalable) and traditional RDBMS systems (which provide rich queries and deep functionality). This talk provides an introduction to MongoDB from one of the developers working on the project. The webcast is accessible to those who are completely new to MongoDB and non-relational databases, but touches on some of the advanced functionality that makes MongoDB a compelling option for all web developers.
