Make sure you didn't miss anything with this list of the Best of the Week in the NoSQL Zone  (October 10 to 16). Here they are, in order of popularity:

1. Sharding Pitfalls: Part I

Sharding is a popular feature in MongoDB, primarily used for distributing data across clusters for horizontal scaling. But as you add complexity to a distributed system, you increase the chances of hitting a problem.

2. Redis Cluster Released as a Minimum Viable Product

If you've been following the development of Redis for a while, you may have heard about Redis Cluster in the past - it's been around, to some degree, since 2011. Well, now Redis Cluster actually exists!

3. A New Source for MEAN Stack Resources

One of the most useful aspects of MongoDB is the MEAN stack - a JavaScript-only web development stack that consists of MongoDB, Express, AngularJS, and Node.js. For a complete collection of resources, Andreas Wienes has created mean-stack.io, an aggregator of MEAN-related content.

4. Solving Data “Variety” with Postgres’s NoSQL Extensions

Many clients don’t quite realize how much powerful ad-hoc query capability they’re losing by leaving SQL. But how can we possibly have the best of both worlds? Well, luckily for us, Postgres is working on a very handy solution.

5. Neo4j: COLLECTing Multiple Values (Too Many Parameters for Function ‘Collect’)

One of my favourite functions in Neo4j’s cypher query language is COLLECT, which allows us to group items into an array for later consumption. However, I’ve noticed that people sometimes have trouble working out how to collect multiple items with COLLECT and struggle to find a way to do so.
