MongoDB and MySQL are both commonly used in web applications.
It is often unclear with one should use one or the other, or if a combination is really ideal.
During this talk, we will discuss the ideal use cases for each, and how they can be used in conjunction.

We will discuss a number of possible ways to to use them both:
– Replicating MongoDB into MySQL for reporting
– MongoDB for caching
– Mixed environments
– Using Hadoop to process data in either direction
