I wrote this blog post this weekend — I think we need more content out there defending MongoDB.
My history with MongoDB is that I have never personally had any issues with it. Nor have I heard firsthand accounts of “unsolvable” issues with it. I’ve had and have seen typical scaling pains — but that’s par for the course — I’ve seen the same thing with every other database I’ve encountered in my 20-year web app development career.
There’s a lot of legacy, “high SEO” content bashing MongoDB on the internet. I figured I’d do my part to put some fresh content out that supports it, since Meteor and Mongo are joined at the hip, and will be so for some time.
Does anyone else think we should be defending MongoDB a bit more, as a community?
