Getting Started with MongoDB and C#

Pretty basic intro to using MongoDB from C#:

Of all the various options out there, MongoDB has been getting a lot of press lately. MongoDB is hailed as one of the top NoSql options out there for being ultra-scalable, and highly performant.

The article is briefly taking the reader from installing MongoDB to connecting and using collections, but also spends some time on defining “documents”, the central piece of document stores, in the section “Introducing the Document: end all, be all”. That reminded me of a nice trick we shared in our daily NoSQL ecosystem news: making your MongoDB C# code more readable with dynamics (instead of dictionaries)

As a final note, it’s good to hear that it is not only me thinking that MongoDB is getting a lot of coverage these days.
