There is a new MongoDB driver in town that aims to take its place in the modern world of Scala. Casbah has long been a steward for MongoDB, but for sometime its synchronous ways has shown it's age. So a new asynchronous, reactive and highly extendable driver has been written from scratch.
In this talk we'll demo the new driver and look at the patterns used to create it. You'll be amazed at how simple it is to write a whole new driver for your favourite asynchronous library! We'll look at some of the challenges in making this so and of making a typesafe Document class. You'll see that through the use of implicits we can allow simple interoperability between native scala types and MongoDB Documents.
