Interview on

The folks over at have posted an interview they did with me on our implementation of MongoDB at Shutterfly. Good folks, great blog. Here is a link to the article. I talk a lot about what we have done at Shutterfly, In particular one item I discuss is ORM’s and the promise of not using heavyweight mappers in a non-relational architecture. I also talk a bit about the challenges and benefits of modeling data as documents. I hope it’s helpful for folks thinking about using something like MongoDB.
