Using MongoDB and a Relational Database Together

Below is the presentation I gave to the Austin MongoDB Day on 3/27/2010. I talked about the design decisions one needs to make when determining whether to introduce a document database like MongoDB into an existing application built on a relational database. I give a few examples of how we’ve made MongoDB and our MySQL database live together in harmony inside CheapTweet.

Thanks to Lynn Bender of GeekAustin, CoSpace, and the folks at 10Gen for putting on a great event.
