=== MongoDB ===
I decided to attend the MongoDB talk at FSOSS 2013 because my newly developed interest in Non SQL databases. I
am currently working towards getting my MongoDB certification for Java developers from MongoDB University, and I already know about the MongoDB concepts. I wanted to find out what new information I could attain from attending the talk on MongoDB. This talk was given by '''Kevin Cearns'''. He talked about the advantages of NoSql Databases over Relational Databases and about MongoDB in particular.
Kevin started off by listing out the four types of Nosql databases, which are:
Kevin also spoke about '''Replication'''. A replica set in MongoDB is a group of mongod processes that maintain the same data set. Replica sets provide redundancy and high availability, and are the basis for all production deployments. Data can live across multiple boxes in multiple servers.
He then went to talk about installing MongoDB and how easy it was to set it up, he showed the installation process by demoing it to the audience. I already have mongodb installed and set up on my local computer so this part was bit of repetitive to me.
