In I.T. there are the questions of the What, the How, the Where, the Why, the Who … and the whoooooooo are you, who who, who whooooooo.
We often concern ourselves with the How to the cost of the What, and that can lead to a poor result sometimes, because, after all, isn’t it the quality of your data, and what you do with it, that distinguishes your end result?
So, what about “the How of the What” to get a more balanced feel. So the data is what is important and the interface to that data is crucial … makes sense. Today we introduce ourselves (though many of you may already have introduced yourself … perhaps with “G’day Mungers! Mongo D.B. to you, matey.“) to MongoDB, a database software that doesn’t have to use SQL. Whaaaaaaat? Yes, a database software that doesn’t have to use the Structured Query Language. (That’s much better. Yeh, no worries.)
In the meantime, have a look at the tutorial here today, and delve into “the How of the What”.
