Topic: MongoDB for the Non-Zealot
Presenter: Chris Nicholls (filling in for Derek Hatchard)
MongoDB is a document-oriented database and a poster child for the NoSQL movement. Although not a golden panacea, MongoDB has proven to be useful for certain types of problems. Derek Hatchard will provide an introduction to MongoDB including core concepts and examples of how to work with MongoDB from Java, C#, Python, and the command line interface.
We are pleased to announce that this is a joint meeting between the Fredericton chapter of the Maritime’s Java User Group and the Fredericton .NET User Group
