Building your first application with MongoDB

MongoDB -- from "humongous" -- is an open source, non-relational,
document-oriented database. Trading off a few traditional features of
databases (notably joins and transactions) in order to achieve much
better performance, MongoDB is fast, scalable, and designed for web
development. 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 will provide an introduction to MongoDB for
engineers and database architects, from one of the developers working
on the project. The presentation will be accessible to those who are
completely new to MongoDB and non-relational databases, but will touch
on some of the advanced functionality that makes MongoDB a compelling
option for all web developers.
