Getting Started with MongoDB


MongoDB (its name derived from “humongous”) is an open-source, document-oriented, NoSQL database that provides high performance, high availability, and automatic scaling. It has become the leader in non-relational databases as Fortune 500 companies have been migrating to MongoDB among others.

This presentation will introduce MongoDB, provide a brief overview, how to get started, create and maintain a working database, and, if time allows, a brief introduction to the Spring Data MongoDB project.
