Getting the Most out of MongoDB
Although MongoDB is a non-relational database, it is still very important that you store your data in an optimal way. This presentation makes you grow up from just starting with MongoDB, to a seasoned user, by teaching you how to design your data schema according to your application's needs. This requires a different mind set than designing for a relational database. Besides schema design techniques, I will also cover how to pick indexes, different types of indexes, and way to find out why queries are potentially not as fast as they could be.
