MongoDB is a high-performance and feature-rich NoSQL database that forms the backbone of numerous complex development systems. You will certainly find the MongoDB solution you are searching for in this book.
Starting with how to initialize the server in three different modes with various configurations, you will then learn a variety of skills including the basics of advanced query operations and features in MongoDB and monitoring and backup using MMS. From there, you can delve into recipes on cloud deployment, integration with Hadoop, and improving developer productivity. By the end of this book, you will have a clear idea about how to design, develop, and deploy MongoDB.
Will this book be useful for you? It depends on your approach to programming, and whether or not you find cookbooks to be of use to you and your coding style. If you enjoy code cookbooks, then this is a well-written and well-explained example of such. If you prefer books of a more traditional sense - focusing on a specific topic and leading you through steps to learn the ins and outs of the system or programming language, then you will not find this here. Depending also on your specific need for MongoDB (i.e. using it with NodeJS), this book may not offer enough recipes on that topic to suit your needs. Before purchasing it, I recommend thinking about your exact needs, and skimming the table of contents.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
