  • MongoDB, confessions of a PostgreSQL-lover
  • Time: Tuesday @ 4:00pm | Room E-132

So, I switched to MongoDB. After using PostgreSQL for 7 years and enjoying every minute it wasn't a switch I was expecting to make. But I'm loving it!

This talk will explore some of the differences between building apps with relational databases and document databases. We'll cover a few of the expected differences, and also some of the more subtle ones. We'll also discuss how some of the perceived limitations of a document database are actually strengths in disguise.
