    Yes, things are going rather slow. This is a monumental project and I have a lot to learn still, which I am working on. And, as long as I am doing it all myself now, it will take even longer. But, it is fun all the same.

    One thing has happened for sure. We are moving away from MongoDB as our choice of core database. It is simply a fact that without some relational backend, doing Skooppa will be immensely more complicated. I've decided we need to go a different route, although I still think MongoDB is a great technology.

    I am eyeing OrientDB currently. It is still a bit in its teething stages, but it is exactly what the doctor ordered, when it comes to polyglot persistence of data. We can offer our customers both document based (which is what was so appealing with MongoDB) and graph based data modeling. In fact, the document model of OrientDB also offers what they call links, which is a much faster way to build relations between data. They basically break the issue joins cause with performance. Long story short: OrientDB is a promising technology and can power Skooppa to be a really cool and super flexible system, which is one of our main goals. :)
