// instead of writing:
db.user.find({age:{$gte:18,$lte:65}},{name,1,age:1,_id:-1}).sort({age:-1, name:1});
// we can write:
db.user.where('age').gte(18).lte(65).select('name age -_id').sort("-age name");
    // passing query conditions is permitted too
db.collection.find().where({ name: 'mongobooster' })
// chaining
db.collection
    .where('age').gte(18).lte(65)
    .where({ 'name': /^mongobooster/i })
    .where('friends').slice(10)
// aggregation
db.companies.aggregate(qb.where('founded_year').gte(2000).lte(2010)) //qb:querybuilder
