Definitely, I LOVE digging through RethinkDB queries. Relational documents with change feeds is exactly what I've always wanted in a database.

Yeah the change feed feature is beautiful too. It's not what sold us but once we had it it made making everything real-time almost trivial.

I think the big thing for us is that everything about RethinkDB screams quality from a technical POV. It's powerful but not over-engineered. The code is pretty clean looking. It "just works" without hiding wads of chewing gum and duct tape in Docker containers or requiring 10-step setup processes. When you do bang on it ChaosMonkey-style it holds up very well.
