Is there a good place I can go to get an overview of BSON?
I have two key questions:
- Using JSON.NET, is it faster to serialize to/from BSON than plain JSON?
- If I have an object with a byte property, will it only take a single byte of space for each byte in the array? And similarly 2, 4, 8, bytes for short, int, long arrays? I am trying to avoid the thing in JSON where a single element in a byte
array actually takes at least 2 bytes (like ",7") and sometimes as many as 4 (",127")
