MongoDB is a leading nosql database. It is horizonatally scalable, document datastore. In this introduction given at Dr Dobbs Conference, Bangalore and Pune in April 2014, I show schema design with an example blog application and Python code snippets. I delivered the same in the maiden MongoDB Evening event at Delhi and Gurgaon in May 2014.
When constructing a data model for your MongoDB collection for CMS, there are various options you can choose from, each of which has its strengths and weaknesses. The three basic patterns are:
1.Store each comment in its own document.
2.Embed all comments in the “parent” document.
3.A hybrid design, stores comments separately from the “parent,” but aggregates comments into a small number of documents, where each contains many comments.
