Anyone know any good resources for learning patterns in Mongoose?
Tutorials/Training would be epic.

@cameronjroe don't know of any beyond the docs. Although, shameless plug, my upcoming video course on EdX has a fair bit about mongoose and schema design and it's free:
@dpinart we don't have one, we're not really big on typescript yet :) you're more than welcome to contribute one though

hey guys how do i safely remove an objectid from DBRef array and when i actually remove the reference object itself. for example i have people and phone-number models people model has a DBRef array of phone-number objects. if i delete a phone-number object in phone-number model, how can i remove all references associated with it safely??

@plasmashadow the way to do this would be with the usual mongodb transaction pattern of "have a separate collection for multi-doc deletes" if you're really concerned about durability: . In most cases its just sufficient to first remove the ObjectId then remove the child doc - this is fine as long as you don't really care about orphaned child docs
@uptownhr $where is probably the best way to do this. Or you could just load the docs one-by-one into a node process and transform them there.
