MongoDB, a cross-platform NoSQL database, is the fastest-growing new database in the world. MongoDB provides a rich document orientated structure with dynamic queries that you'll recognize from RDMBS offerings such as MySQL. In other words, this is a book about a NoSQL database that does not require the SQL crowd to re-learn how the database world works!
MongoDB has reached 1.0 and already boasts 50,000+ users. The community is strong and vibrant and MongoDB is improving at a fast rate. With scalable and fast databases becoming critical for today's applications, this book shows you how to install, administer and program MongoDB *without* pretending SQL never existed.
