Overall Satisfaction with MongoDB

I used it in personal projects to build an application centered around GitHub. In addition, I have used it in other personal projects that have streamlined our data storage. My current position uses MySQL which has only further made me want to return to MongoDB. My primary language is JavaScript, and I intend to start my own company. I will be building the full stack, and MongoDB will be my database of choice.
  • JSON From
  • Easy to query using Mongoose
  • Speed is comparable to competitors
  • Huge user adoption
  • The callback system is a little unclear for new users
  • Sometimes it was difficult to gain control of a local database if I forgot to shut it off correctly
  • Continue to follow market trends
  • I have used it for personal projects and it was free
  • Increased efficiency
  • My standard for comparision
MongoDB is my only NoSQL database that I have used. I have used SQL databases and don't find them as enjoyable. I code in full stack JavaScript and it blends perfectly with this. I know that there are competitors in this space, and I need to take time to try them all out. I have heard good things about Redis.
It is suited very well for full stack JavaScript applications. It has been around long enough so that there are a ton of tools built around it. I still need more time with other similar database solutions, but currently MongoDB is my tool of choice when creating a new application or projects.
