Make sure you didn't miss anything with this list of the Best of the Week in the NoSQL Zone (Jan. 17 to Jan. 23). Here they are, in order of popularity:

1. A Beginner’s Guide to MongoDB Performance Turbocharging

This is the second part of our MongoDB time series tutorial, and this post will be dedicated to performance tuning. In my previous post, I introduced you into our virtual project requirements. In short, we have 50M time events, spanning from the 1st of January 2012 to the 1st of January 2013.

2. Node.js and N1QL

3. Programmable Diff

From time to time, the author gets down deep inside the NuoSQL compiler and gives it a good hard shake, which can make comparing the new compiler to the old compiler's results a challenge. He would like a diff tool that's extremely configurable and written in Java, so in this article, he explores the way diff works.

4. Neo4j Backup: Dealing with java.lang.ClassCastException

When using Neo4j’s online backup facility there are two ways of triggering java.lang.ClassCastException, either by using the ‘single://‘ or ‘ha://‘ syntax, and these behave slightly differently. In this article, you'll learn how to handle these exceptions.
