This session will cover the various consistency models available when using non-relational databases, including strong, immediate, monotonic and eventual consistency. In particular, we’ll look at MongoDB and explore how to transact on documents, what sorts of transactions are possible and not possible with MongoDB, as well as a discussion of the commit model.

Some prior knowledge of transactional models and noSQL is asssumed. No illegal activities are suggested or condoned.
