The other big takeaway was that working with mongo’s document structure is much more simpler to what RDBMS is. While was I working in mongoshell where I was using JavaScirpt to write code and later when i moved over to Java classes it was fairly simple. It was all about knowing 3 classes (if not 2) and you are done. Working with Maps (or Dictionaries) is pretty simple and using that knowledge in any language cant really be difficult. I was able to go back and learn JavaSciprt all over again and code a logic pretty quick.
a) Pretty quick to get going off the ground. I’d actually use this one instead of a mysql if i am trying a few things and need to use quick-start backend. (where in production – i don’t know yet)
b) If you are taking this course be mindful of not making judgements on the technology or how you’d want to use it especially model your schemas (or shall I say documents). Wait for the now or go and read more.
