During this workshop we will have a look on how MongoDB can be used. After ashort introduction we continue with a few scenarios for schema design toillustrate that even although MongoDB is schemaless, how the data is storedhas a big impact on performance. Then we proceed to do some hands on workwhere we import data and do some queries to show how indexes should be used.In the second half we look at set-ups. From single machine set-ups viareplication and finally sharding. At the end of this workshop, you'll have agood understand of MongoDB's strong points. As language, we'll use PHP, butthe workshop would equally be useful for users of other languages.
