Dropping ACID with MongoDB

You can find more information on the speaker's site:

MongoDB (from "humongous") is a high-performance, open source, schema-free document-oriented database. Trading off a few traditional features of databases (notably joins and transactions) in order to achieve much better performance, MongoDB is fast, scalable, and designed for web development. This talk will cover:

* Scaling with MongoDB (replica pairs, master/slave, sharding)
* Getting started - CRUD and the JavaScript shell
* Creating schemas for a document-oriented DB
* Cool features for developers (capped collections, file storage, upserts and more)

Mongo occupies a sweet spot for powering web apps, and is in use at SourceForge, EA Games Online,, Github, the New York Times, The Business Insider, and many other companies.
