INDUSTRY FOCUS: Healthcare
MONDO: What’s a current trend technology trend you’ve seen, and what does it indicate about the changing industry?
CONNOR: Things move really fast in technology, and there’s always a ton to learn and digest. Recently I’ve noticed a lot of people building the same “to-do” applications over and over again with different technology, expecting some huge breakthrough. New technology is fun to play around with, but using it doesn’t automatically make your product better more awesome than what’s already out there. Just because you employ a new technology doesn’t mean your idea in itself is unique.
MONDO: What benefits do you see in using MondoDB over the other document oriented databases?
CONNOR: MongoDB is nice because the ORM mongoose is well maintained and documented. It’s also a popular choice for clients using Node.js., or those deploying to Heroku.
