MongoDB and .NET
Tuesday, September 10, 2013 5:30 PM, Pittsburgh, PA
View MongoDB and .NET on Bing MapsMongoDB is an open-source NoSQL document database that combines the scalability, performance features of NoSQL databases with the ease of use features such as dynamic queries and indexes that are provided by traditional relational databases. The balanced approach of functionality vs. scalability has made MongoDB a leading database of choice for developing large-scale applications or developing small projects. MongoDB is a great fit for n-tiered JavaScript, JSON based web apps. As you can see when you query the internet "MongoDB is in the sweet spot of performance and features."

This talk introduces MongoDB by explaining its features and the environment used to do development in .NET. A quick overview will be given how the MongoDB document database is different than other types of NoSQL databases. Following this introduction we will discuss some specific use cases for MongoDB. One of the uses cases will use MongoDB's geospatial features. Another use case will include an n-tiered JavaScript, JSON based web app.
