Basic overview of the rmongodb package for R

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:

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.
