That sound you hear is my mind being blown. Rick Copeland and the folks at O’Reilly have really put together a great book here. Admittedly, it was outside of my usual comfort zone because of the depth of the content, but it forced me to raise my game to really dig in on some MongoDB goodness here.
As I come from the old school, relational DB background, I haven’t done as much work in NoSQL DB engines. I’m impressed with the detail that Rick put into the content and the use cases provided gave great context to bring code and concept together.
The target audience for this is definitely an application developer or someone in database management. As a systems administrator, some of the depth of detail may be overwhelming. That being said, the book is great. I’d absolutely recommend it.
