Developing A RESTful API With Golang And A MongoDB NoSQL Database

If you’ve been following along, you’re probably familiar with my love of Node.js and the Go programming language. Over the past few weeks I’ve been writing a lot about API development with MongoDB and Node.js, but did you know that MongoDB also has an official SDK for Golang? As of now the SDK is in beta, but at least it exists and is progressing.

The good news is that it isn’t difficult to develop with the Go SDK for MongoDB and you can accomplish quite a bit with it.

In this tutorial we’re going to take a look at building a simple REST API that leverages the Go SDK for creating data and querying in a MongoDB NoSQL database.

Getting Started With MongoDB As A Docker Container Deployment

MongoDB is one of the most popular NoSQL databases on the market right now and is used heavily with Node.js development in particular. So what if you wanted to give MongoDB a spin and see what it’s all about?

There are plenty of deployment options when it comes to using MongoDB. For example, I had recently written a tutorial titled, Developing a RESTful API with Node.js and MongoDB Atlas which focused on the MongoDB cloud solution called Atlas. However, you can also install MongoDB on premise using multiple options.

In this tutorial we’re going to focus on using Docker to deploy MongoDB as a container and interact with it with the shell client.

TPDP Episode #22: NoSQL Databases And The Flexibility Of A Non-Relational Model

I am pleased to announce that the latest episode of The Polyglot Developer Podcast is now available for download. In this episode titled, NoSQL Databases and the Flexibility of a Non-Relational Model, I’m joined by Matt Groves where we talk about use-cases for NoSQL versus relational databases and how to use NoSQL in your own applications.

Matt Groves and I used to work together at Couchbase, which is a NoSQL database company, and is by no means the focus of this episode. The focus is NoSQL in general and all the great things that you can do with it.

Developing A RESTful API With Node.js And MongoDB Atlas

Most modern web applications need to be able to handle data consumption requests and data manipulation requests from clients using HTTP. It is the norm to pass JSON data between these requests so it makes sense to use a NoSQL document database because JSON and similar is the common storage format, eliminating the need to marshal data to new formats in every request.

Lucky for us, leveraging these concepts and technologies is not a difficult task.

We’re going to see how to create a RESTful API using Node.js and Express Framework that communicates to a cloud instance of MongoDB called Atlas.

Using Couchbase With Docker And Deploying A Containerized NoSQL Cluster

You can do a lot of cool things with Docker, for example containerizing web applications, processes, and a bunch of other things. What happens when you want to deploy your database as a container, or more specifically, your distributed database as containers? Most NoSQL databases are distributed, meaning they can be easily clustered with data replication and a bunch of other awesome features. How do you provision each node or configure the cluster?

We’re going to see how to create a custom Docker image for the popular document-oriented NoSQL database, Couchbase, and cluster a few containers together to make one awesome NoSQL cluster.

Build A Full Stack Movie Database With NoSQL, Node.js, And Angular

Not too long ago you’ll remember I wrote a full stack tutorial on developing a full stack movie database with the Go programming language. In that tutorial we made use of NoSQL as the database, Golang as the backend, and Angular as the client frontend. However, I realize that not everyone is a Go developer.

This time around we’re going to take a look at developing the same full stack movie database application, but using Node.js instead of Golang. It is a good example to show that elements in the stack are modular and each element is replaceable with another technology.
