  • Why You Should Not Use MongoDB For Your Project

    MongoDB is a popular NoSQL document storage database, commonly used in JavaScript web applications. It stores data in JSON format and lacks the ability to express relations between documents. On the other hand, PostgreSQL is a SQL database that uses tables and rows to store data, allowing for constraints and enforcing relations. MongoDB's popularity stems from its association with the MEAN stack, while PostgreSQL is widely used but lacks a catchy name. MongoDB's ease of use with JavaScript may be appealing, but in most cases, a relational database like PostgreSQL offers better development velocity, schema enforcement, and scalability.
