I am figuring out the data model needed to support my app. I have a traditional RDBMS background / mindset, where I apply normalisation in all cases by default…
Reading around NoSQL approaches, it seems with a document-store database, such as MongoDB with a 1-to-many relationship and particularly with heavy reads on the parent I should consider a “nested” approach. This link is an example.
The alternative is a “related” approach with separate documents per object.
Am I correct that Parse really only offers the “related” approach through Pointer or Relation “data types”? We don’t get the option to create “nested” child objects?
