This month DC ALT.NET will once again move into the not often covered subjects in the .NET world, in covering MongoDB with David James. There has been a bit of discussion around non relational databases lumped under the name of NoSQL. Later this month, I'm helping curate the NoSQLEast conference in Atlanta, GA which may be of interest to some of you. This meeting, we'll dive into MongoDB, one of the NoSQL solutions.
MongoDB is an open source document-oriented database written in the C++ programming language. Like other document-oriented databases, MongoDB is designed for problems without heavy transactional requirements that aren't easily solved by traditional relational databases, including problems which require the database to span many servers. K. Scott Allen has a great writeup on how to use MongoDB from C# that you can find here and is a great read. And yes, there is even LINQ support as well. Come join us and find out what NoSQL alternatives can do for you.
