For our June 2011 meeting, Sridhar Nanjundeswaran will be talking about MongoDB.
MongoDB is a new document-oriented database. It provides a new paradigm for storing and accessing data, one that works very naturally with Perl.
We'll cover the basics of
- What is it?
- Why do I care?
- How do I get it working?
- What about ORMs? (time permitting)
For those interested in hands-on, please bring your laptop. Instructions for getting started will be posted and we can do some interactive demos.
