Why Do Developers Prefer MongoDB?

Please join Percona’s Sr. Technical Operations Architect Tim Vaillancourt as he presents “Why Do Developers Prefer MongoDB?" on Thursday, October 25th, 2018, at 10:00 AM PDT (UTC-7) / 1:00 PM EDT (UTC-4).

As the fastest growing database technology today, MongoDB® helps organizations and businesses across industries create scalable applications that would have been deemed impossible a few years ago.

The world is on the brink of an information overload, and huge databases are needed to store and manipulate this information. This is possible with MongoDB, which is as flexible as it is powerful. You can build extremely high-performance apps with the joy of a schemaless lifestyle. It's easy to adopt and deploy, which is why developers like the database.

We’ll examine MongoDB with regard to other NoSQL database platforms and provide a side-by-side comparison that will help you decide if MongoDB is a good fit for your applications.
