MongoDB - from “humongous” - is an open source, non-relational, document-oriented database.

The goal of the project is MongoDB to bridge the gap between key-value stores (which are fast and highly scalable) and traditional RDBMS systems (which queries Provide rich and deep functionality).

This talk will introduce the rich feature set of mongoDB and examine how easy it is to develop with using python. We’ll discuss the various ODM’s solutions that really let you develop quickly and how mongoDB can be used to easily scale.
