MongoDB Changing Default: Now, Write Errors are Reported

To stay on top of the changing nature of the data connectivity world and to help enterprises navigate these changes, download this whitepaper from Progress Data Direct that explores the results of the 2016 Data Connectivity Outlook survey.

I’m really happy to share that, in a coordinated effort, all official MongoDB drivers are changing their defaults to return a response from writes today.

I think that this is kind of a turning point: MongoDB is finally “newbie safe.” You can just spin up a mongod and it’ll default to journaling being on. Then you write to it from a client and it’ll default to telling you if a write didn’t go through.

There are a lot of awesome “quiet” changes like this going into 2.4. I’m actually pretty excited about all these little improvements: sexy features like aggregation and TTL collections are all well and good, but we’re in the process of making some structural improvements that should pay big dividends in the future. Now, back to coding so you guys might actually get some new $-mods in 2.4 :)
