Developing Applications With Golang and MongoDB

February 21, 2020 at 07:00 PM

When developing modern applications with the Go programming language (Golang), almost always will you be using native data structures to represent the data that you work with. In many scenarios, those data structures have nested components to them, making them less than ideal to use when working with a flat formated relational database.

This is where MongoDB and a NoSQL document model can help with the development process.

MongoDB stores data as BSON, which is binary JSON, a format that can be mapped quite easily to data structures within Go. Being able to mutate complex data within the database, execute queries, and engage with the data without having to do any code-lengthy transformations is a huge benefit to application development.

In this session, we’re going to see how to use the Go programming language to establish a connection to a MongoDB cluster and then perform create, retrieve, update, and delete (CRUD) operations to work with the data.
