Tutorial: MongoDB workshop

A session at PHPBenelux Conference 2013

Friday 25th January, 2013

9:00am to 12:30pm (WET)

During this workshop we will have a look on how MongoDB can be used. After a short introduction we continue with a few scenarios for schema design to illustrate that even although MongoDB is schemaless, how the data is stored has a big impact on performance. Then we proceed to do some hands on work where we import data and do some queries to show how indexes should be used. In the second half we look at set-ups. From single machine set-ups via replication and finally sharding. At the end of this workshop, you’ll have a good understand of MongoDB’s strong points. As language, we’ll use PHP, but the workshop would equally be useful for users of other languages.
