Tip of the day: CRUD standard vs SQL vs MongoDB

Just noticed this little gem on a 10Gen course, about the respective names of the CRUD operations in common practice, versus the equivalent operations in SQL and in MongoDB. Links point to Wikipedia for SQL and the relevant MongoDB documentation page for the MongoDB column.

Theory SQL MongoDB
Create INSERT insert()
Retrieve SELECT find()
Update UPDATE update()
Delete DELETE remove()

By the way, if you are doing (or considering doing) any serious MongoDB work and are not yet an expert on it, you have to do yourself a favor and take advantage of the free courses now provided by 10Gen at https://education.10gen.com on the basis of the edX platform. Courses are available for DBA training, as well as Java, Node.js and Python developers.

I'm impressed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a blog that's both equally educative and interesting, and without a doubt,
you have hit the nail on the head. The problem is something which too few people are
speaking intelligently about. Now i'm very happy I found this
in my hunt for something concerning this.
