Mongo is fun

These past months I have been working for a client based in NY and we have been developing a CMS platform. The interesting part is the database we have used has been Mongo. Mongo makes databases fun. No more having to go to phpmysqladmin to recreate or drop tables, alter them, you just code and change the database as you go along. Your database just works.

One of the things that I like about Mongo is its speed. It is just fast! and has a great features right out of the box, like replica sets for scaling, sharding, etc. This NoSQL database is really worth checking out. Let me put it this way: next time I develop a small web site that requires a database, no more SQL!

My next adventure will take me to the sunny state of California where I'll be working on site for a RAND corporation, so I'll be writing from there soon!
