  • The first book on MongoDB, a database with 45,000 current users and download growth of 50% per month
  • Written by MongoDB gurus and reviewed by one of the MongoDB creators
  • Covers the whole range of MongoDB administration and programming

MongoDB, a cross-platform NoSQL database, is the fastest-growing new database in the world. MongoDB provides a rich document-oriented structure with dynamic queries that you'll recognize from RDBMS offerings such as MySQL. In other words, this is a book about a NoSQL database that does not require the SQL crowd to re-learn how the database world works!

MongoDB has reached 1.0 and boasts 50,000+ users. The community is strong and vibrant and MongoDB is improving at a fast rate. With scalable and fast databases becoming critical for today's applications, this book shows you how to install, administer and program MongoDB without pretending SQL never existed.
