MongoDB Days Austin post-conference thoughts

It was a great decision going to the MongoDB Days mini-conference in Austin — learned a lot about what MongoDB is, what it can do really efficiently, and also got an introduction to thinking in documents instead of the old relational way.

I chose to go to the pre-conference workshop sessions as well, and that was important to get this introduction to MongoDB (and schemaless design) out of the way. Everyone from 10gen was very helpful, and willing to discuss the parallels between relational schema design and best practices on the documents approach.

Loved the conference, and will be paying more attention to MongoDB in the future thinking about potential uses in client projects.
