I have been playing around with MongoDB quite a bit over the last few months. Because I am much better at coding in R, I decided to write up my notes on how to use the rmongodb package.

This is not a comprehensive tutorial by any stretch, but I wanted to share my notes as I walked through the various tasks that I would need for my projects.

The tutorial and R Markdown file are located here: https://gist.github.com/Btibert3/7751989#file-rmongodb-tutorial-md

If I missed anything, please let me know. The package has it’s quirks, but just like R, once you work through the functions, it’s pretty powerful.

**NOTE**: The tutorial is embedded below. It doesn’t render that well, so I would recommend hopping over to the gist at the link above.
