1. A usable substitute for 'join' queries is the Power Fields
concept in Telerik Backend Services. You can use them client-side or within the Cloud Code. Also, we are currently developing a 'Expand for relations' feature, which is expected to be delivered soon.
2. Telerik Backend Services runs on a MongoDB database. We are trying to make our SDKs as more as comprehensive and advantageous as possible so that we do not overwhelm our customers with additional knowledge or readings. However, it would be still beneficial for our customers to possess some knowledge about the overall concepts of the document-based (NO SQL) databases, and, for example, the MongoDB operators.
Please note, that we do not currently expose the aggregation part of the MongoDB framework.
3. A scheduled jobs
functionality is planned to be delivered before or around mid-2014. At this moment we cannot announce more details on this.
A possible workaround for a scheduled job is to program an external service to make a call to a certain content type in Telerik Backend Services and trigger an event hook in the Cloud Code with implemented function with the desired cleanup logic.
Let us know if any further questions arise.
