MongoDB in Action

MongoDB in Action is a comprehensive guide to MongoDB for application developers. The book begins by explaining what makes MongoDB unique and describing its ideal use cases. A series of tutorials designed for MongoDB mastery then leads into detailed examples for leveraging MongoDB in e-commerce, social networking, analytics, and other common applications.

Big data can mean big headaches. MongoDB is a document-oriented database designed to be flexible, scalable, and very fast, even with big data loads. It’s built for high availability, supports rich, dynamic schemas, and lets you easily distribute data across multiple servers.

MongoDB in Action introduces you to MongoDB and the document-oriented database model. This perfectly paced book provides both the big picture you’ll need as a developer and enough low-level detail to satisfy a system engineer. Numerous examples will help you develop confidence in the crucial area of data modeling. You’ll also love the deep explanations of each feature, including replication, auto-sharding, and deployment

This book is written for developers. No MongoDB or NoSQL experience required.
