Mongo, Linq, and the C# driver: Memoirs from a driver test pilot

New York ALT.NET Group
25-26 May 2011 (Add to calendar) GMT
(Exact location not available) , New York, US


Justin Dearing was given early access to the 10gen C# driver. He naturally decided to use this bleeding edge driver to build an ASP.NET project that had a very aggressive delivery schedule. This is the story of how he made it work.

This talk will give an overview of how to use the official C# driver in a real life application. A basic overview of how to install and query mongo will be provided. In addition, I will cover using LINQ with mongo cursors (which implement IEnumerable) to  handle business logic that cannot be handled directly by mongo.
