Migrating to MongoDB

While MySQL and PostgreSQL are the usual options for database-driven web applications, developers can now consider non-relational databases as serious alternatives.

This session will present a case study of why and how we migrated from a backend built on a mix of MySQL and SQLite to MongoDB. The session will cover the following points:
- Key differences between an SQL RDBMS and Mongo,
- What made it a better fit in our case,
- Other similar databases that were evaluated (CouchDB, Tokyo Cabinet, Amazon SimpleDB),
- Hands-on technical examples of using MongoDB from PHP5.
