Mongoid (especially 3.x) has become a very popular choice as an ODM for Rails applications. But did you know that Mongoid goes way beyond acting as just as an ODM in Rails? It can be used with any Ruby application and can be used to its full potential. This talk is about how we can push mongoid (and in turn MongoDB) to its limit.
Symbolclass is enhanced for better querying. We see how
.andoperations can be done easily without any MongoDB specific syntax.
This talk is actually supposed to be only in Ruby realm! I have changed the intro to ensure the Ruby aspect is highlighted and not Rails.
Very well written outline - kudos! My suggestion would also be to relate it as much as you can with ruby and not only rails.
