Document oriented databases are deceivingly easy to use. Just shove some stuff in and it works? Well, not so fast…

Turns out, just because you have no schema or no enforced document structure doesn’t mean that anything goes. How you structure your document will have an impact on your cost, your speed, and your ability to use the database. Sharing from Nuri’s experience using Cosmos and Mongo, this talk will review some common patterns and anti-patterns in document oriented design. Nuri will show you some common scenarios and how to approach designing them appropriately for this brave new world.
