Slides and Audio for my Introduction to MongoDB presentation

I presented at the Austin .NET User Group this week. The topic was an “Introduction to MongoDB”. Below are the slides and the audio from the presentation.

The talk covers MongoDB from the perspective of a newcomer to the technology. I relate the concepts in MongoDB to their corresponding SQL idioms–pointing out their differences and likenesses. The talk covers much of the functionality and capabilities of MongoDB, from the simple to the complex (queries, indexes, sharding, replication, installation, etc.). A lot of questions that are asked push deeper into the internals, many of which I answer, but several I defer with a simple “I don’t know”.

The talk went much longer than I expected–over 2 hours. I was told it was the longest meeting they ever had. I was pleased at how engaged everyone was. There were so many questions, and many people seemed genuinely interested. I thoroughly enjoyed giving the talk. Can’t wait to do it again!
