A presentation on MongoDB data model and the benefits and implications of using a document database. Topics covered: rich documents, simplifying relations, relationships as embed vs reference, e-commerce (nb we’ve already posted about E-Commerce apps with MongoDB
Ted introduces the reader to a different approach to getting used to a new product/concept: exploration tests:
In this article, we’ll use a slightly different method to investigate MongoDB (or any technology). The procedure, called an exploration test, will help us find a possible bug in the server and, along the way, highlight one of the common issues object-oriented developers will run into when using MongoDB.
As a side note, the so called issue Ted is mentioning has nothing to do with MongoDB but with the way tests should be designed.
