The Definitive Guide to MongoDB, Second Edition, is updated for the latest version and includes all of the latest MongoDB features, including the aggregation framework introduced in version 2.2 and hashed indexes in version 2.4. MongoDB is the most popular of the "Big Data" NoSQL database technologies, and it's still growing. David Hows from 10gen, along with experienced MongoDB authors Peter Membrey and Eelco Plugge, provide their expertise and experience in teaching you everything you need to know to become a MongoDB pro.
The Definitive Guide to MongoDB, Second Edition, starts with the basics, including how to install on Windows, Linux, and OS X, and how MongoDB handles your data. Then you'll learn how to develop with MongoDB with both PHP and Python, including an example application using a PHP driver to create a blog application. Finally, you'll dig into more advanced but extremely important MongoDB features, including optimization, replication, and sharding -- load-balancing that makes MongoDB ideal for dealing with Big Data.
