MongoDB for Developers with Python Transcripts
Chapter: Welcome to the course
Lecture: MongoDB is loved
0:01 Which one happens to be the most popular, the most widely used?
0:04 Well, you can guess, it's probably MongoDB, given this course, right.
0:07 However, you probably didn't guess how much more popular MongoDB is
0:13 relative to its other NoSQL friends.
0:17 So we've got CouchDB, this orange one,
0:19 which is way down there, and sort of not even trending;
0:22 well, we've got RavenDB which is basically not used,
0:25 Cassandra, which kind of peaked around 2016, is heading down.
0:29 We got MongoDB just much, much more popular than these,
0:34 if you want to experiment or play around with this data yourself,
0:36 you can check out the link at the bottom.
0:39 So MongoDB is really, really popular,
0:41 it's by far the most popular, widely used document database.
0:44 It's also really loved, so one of my favorite places
0:47 to get insight into to the developer community is Stack Overflow's yearly survey;
0:52 so on the 2017 yearly survey, you can see
0:56 MongoDB appears very high up the rank for most loved technology,
1:01 and if you look at the little description at the bottom,
1:03 this represents the number of developers
1:05 who are currently using the technology and really enjoy working with it.
1:09 So MongoDB is right up there, among all at the top.
1:12 Now, what about wanted?
1:15 In fact, MongoDB just dominates the wanted category,
1:17 so this is people who are not currently using MongoDB
1:20 or currently using whatever technology is listed here,
1:23 but they wish they were, right.
1:26 So MongoDB is definitely highly, highly desired
1:29 for the people who are not using it,
1:31 and very much loved by the people who are.
