I've been using relation databases for years and I'm very familiar with approaches to scaling them, so it was very interesting to see how MongoDB needs to be scaled, along with some of the gotchas of each approach. Even for someone with limited knowledge of MongoDB (I knew almost nothing of MongoDB before attending this talk), Derick did a great job of making this accessible and interesting.
