After the release of MongoDB 2.6, we had the opportunity to chat with one of our Kernel Engineers, Matt Dannenberg. Matt was MongoDB's first intern, and joined through HackNY's Fellows Program. After two summers with MongoDB, Matt joined this past May as a full time employee on the Kernel team, working on the MongoDB Server.

Real-World technical insight into MongoDB Development and Management
You can learn MongoDB online through a number of resources, but there's nothing like learning from experience. At MongoDB World, you'll hear from startups like Stripe to large enterprises like Cisco and TicketMaster and government agencies like the Department of Veterans affairs and the UK Government digital services about how they
This April, MongoDB will be heading to Canada for PyCon. On the way, we'll be stopping in Toronto and Montreal to meet the community. We'll be hosting two free events for the community to learn more about operating MongoDB at Scale and see what's coming next in the MongoDB roadmap.
On April 8 in Toronto, join us at Bento Miso Collaborative Workspace for a free Evening event with MongoDB. MongoDB Solutions Architect, Dmitry Baev will give an overview of MongoDB Schema and Application design and show you what's coming next in the MongoDB development cycle.
MongoDB will be at PyCon 2014 in Montreal. We're looking forward to meeting with the Python community at the event. Catch Jesse Davis's talk on Asynchronous Python frameworks and stop by the MongoDB Booth (#201) to meet the MongoDB Community, Engineering and Education team. Jesse, who helped work on Tulip and is the core maintainer of Motor, the async driver for MongoDB and Tornado, will discuss how to use the various asynchronous frameworks for building Python applications.
We've seen great adoption of MongoDB and Python. MongoDB's data model is naturally suited to Python programming, so python projects... Read More >
