We will explore several modeling scenarios from my own experience that can easily be achieved using RavenDB, but are difficult (if not nearly impossible) to build using a classic relational database. We will introduce RavenDB, but the focus will be on helping those accustomed to SQL Server or other relational databases learn good document modeling skills by example, with a summary of document modeling guidelines at the end.
