On Tuesday October 11th. MonctonUG presents From RDBMS to NoSQL with MongoDB, by Sebastien Aube from Cognitive X Solutions Inc.

You must have heard of the NoSQL movement. Saving objects directly in the database. What’s that all about. In this presentation we’ll talk about using a NoSQL database as a datastore for your application. We’ll demonstrate 1:1 examples of SQL vs MongoDB with a simple database application.

Some definitions:

MongoDB
MongoDB (from “humongous”) is an open source, high-performance, schema-free, document-oriented database written in the C++ programming language.[1] The database is document-oriented so it manages collections of JSON-like documents. Many applications can thus model data in a more natural way, as data can be nested in complex hierarchies and still be query-able and indexable.

NoSQL
In computing, NoSQL (sometimes expanded to “not only SQL”) is a broad class of database management systems that differ from classic relational database management systems (RDBMSes) in some significant ways. These data stores may not require fixed table schemas, usually avoid join operations, and typically scale horizontally. Academia typically refers to these databases as structured storage, a term that would include classic relational databases as a subset.
