MongoDB: A gentle introduction to the world of NoSQL
Will Ford
We will start with a gentle introduction to the history and common uses for MongoDB. We will follow up the introduction with simple ingestion of data and querying. We will finish off with aggregation operations, and if time permits, we will begin to discuss MapReduce in the context of MongoDB. If you have not ventured significantly from the SQL world, this is the class for you.

If you would like to follow along in an identical environment, please bring a workstation-class laptop (8+Gb RAM) with VirtualBox installed.
