today I have finished the lecture of a technical ebook named “Instant MongoDB” written by Amol Nayak, and published by Packt Publishing. You can find the book here (only in digital edition).
This is a short book (only 72 pages) but all its contents are recommended if you haven’t any idea of NoSql databases and MongoDB in particular or if you need a fast guide for create and use a MongoDB database.
The book have a lot of examples of differents functions of MongoDB, like a CRUD operations (create, read, update and delete), aggegation framework and mapReduce functionality.
Maybe I miss more information about replicaset and sharding, two essential features for MongoDB.
The book is especially recommended for Developers and Administrators, wants to know a new type of database that are very recommended for store large amounts of data.
