5 Things I Learned While Modeling Data in MongoDB

Track: Practices and Other Tech
Abstract

Ever find yourself struggling to apply data modeling best practices to your projects? I do.

I recently worked with two teammates to rapidly build an app. We did our best to model our data, but we didn’t get it all right the first time.

In this session, I’ll share five things I learned while modeling data for this app. You’ll leave with practical data modeling tips you can apply to your next project that uses a document database like MongoDB.
