MongoDB 4.2 comes GA soon delivering some amazing new features on multiple areas. In this talk, we will focus on the new capabilities of the aggregation framework. We are going to cover the new operators and expressions. At the same time, we will explore how updates commands can now use the aggregation framework operators. We are also going to present aggregation framework improvements focusing on the on-demand materialized views. Finally, we are going to explore the wildcard indexes introduced in MongoDB 4.2 and how they change the way we design documents and build queries/aggregations. We will also make a reference to the new index build system.
