Schema Design Basics

A session at MongoUK 2011

Monday 19th September, 2011

10:15am to 11:00am (GMT)

One of the challenges that comes with moving to MongoDB is figuring out how to best model your data. While most developers have internalized the rules of thumb fo designing schemas for RDBMSs, these rules don't always apply to MongoDB. The simple fact that documents can represent rich, schema-free data structures means that we have a lot of viable alternaties to the standard, normalized, relational model. Not only that, MongoDB has several unique features, such as atomic updates and indexed array keys, that greatly influence the kinds of schemas that make sense.
