I will not categorize this article as one more mongophobic article that makes headlines from time to time here and there like:
- MongoDB has 'architectural' problems and has done nothing to improve
- 600TB MongoDB Database 'accidentally' exposed on the Internet
I also agree with much of his arguments when he tries to describe of what is going wrong with mongoDB's ecosystem.
Still I am not as pessimistic as the writer and I hope that:
- a) This connector to BI tools is only a temporary quick fix solution and there are better tools coming in the pipeline.
- b) MongoDB will listen to his arguments and comes with a revised policy regarding its partners and the ecosystem at large.
The story of how $lookup ended up been part of community edition makes me believe that mongoDB can do that.
