TECH TIP: Using MongoDB with R

Mongodb-databaseAs the next installment of the insideBIGDATA TECH TIP series, I wanted to focus on the marriage of two important technologies to the data science community: the R statistical environment and the MongoDB database. R offers a machine learning modeling platform that is the choice of many data scientists while MongoDB comes from “humongous” and is considered the leading open-source NoSQL database that drives much of big data.

In this article I’d like to highlight a recent blog article “Basic overview of the rmongodb package for R” that goes through the basic use of the rmongodb package for R. The article shows all the basics including connecting to a MongoDB database, querying the data, building a data set, and writing data. It is a great way to start using these two useful tools together.
