We'll begin with a discussion of non-relational databases in general. This will focus on the gains in scalability and flexibility that non-relational systems can provide over the typical RDBMS. We will then review some of the non-relational systems that have become popular recently, including BigTable, SimpleDB, CouchDB and MongoDB.
The second part of the talk will focus specifically on MongoDB. This will be a review of the features of MongoDB and the use cases it excels at. We will also walk through a case study using MongoDB from several different programming languages.
