Open source is the heart of Big Data, driving the state of the art in both data storage and data processing. As recent research suggests, when IT professionals and data scientists get serious about building Big Data applications, they overwhelmingly turn to MongoDB and Hadoop. MongoDB is increasingly the industry’s default data store for Big Data-type applications, and it also works for data processing. Hadoop, for its part, is deployed for deep, computationally-intensive data processing.
The two technologies are highly complementary.
Small wonder, then, that many companies use the two together. To meet this demand, 10gen built... Read More >
Every month we bring you interviews with members of our MongoDB community — including organisers of MongoDB user groups from around the world
The Munich MongoDB User Group is the first and the largest MUG in the German speaking area, and is sponsored and run jointly by comSysto and 10gen. So far, the group have had more than 10 meetups aiming for monthly meetups with lightning talks, pizza or sandwiches and cold drinks.
Tomislav Zorc and Bernd Zuther, software engineers for comSysto, will be giving a talk, Pizza “Quattro Shardoni” with... Read More >
Big Data is a big deal, but sometimes the realities of Big Data adoption get lost in the hype about its possibilities.
It’s therefore interesting to see how IT and data science practitioners talk about Big Data versus how analysts and media discuss it. According to a new SiliconAngle TrendConnect analysis of Big Data-related Twitter posts, IT is focused on practical technology solutions, with Hadoop and MongoDB at rough parity and dominating the conversation.
Media and analysts? They’re talking at a much higher level about “Big Data” more generically.

Over the past two weeks I have been on a whirlwind tour to talk about Profiling PHP Applications (at PFCongres), but mostly about MongoDB at various (PHP) user groups in the South West of the US. 10gen_ (the makers of MongoDB_ and my employers) covered my time and flight, and provided me with some beer money.
MongoDB has been highly adopted by the Java community with 10gen and community supported tools for connecting MongoDB to Java and the JVM.
This Fall 10gen is putting on a four part Java webinar series. Join us from October to December for an interactive overview to help you get up and running with MongoDB and Java from building your first application to utilizing Java ODMs such as Morphia. Learn more about the upcoming webinars below
MongoDB Munich is coming to Germany on October 16, and this year features new presentation topics, including Improved Analytics with MongoDB via the New Aggregation Framework, and Deployment Preparedness.
At MongoDB days around the world many attendees are just learning about or evaluating MongoDB to see if it is the right fit for their use case. Others are already in development or using MongoDB in production, and are looking for a little more depth or are interested in best practices to optimize their use of MongoDB.
To help you get the most from your day at MongoDB Munich, here's... Read More >
I am pleased to announce that we are now offering free online MongoDB courses for all, available at education.10gen.com. Our first two courses, M101, MongoDB for Developers and M102, MongoDB for DBAs, will be launching in October, but you can signup today.
Richard Kreuter, Lead Consulting Engineering, and I will be co-teaching the developer course. Dwight Merriman, our founder and CEO, will be teaching the DBA course.
This is tremendously exciting for me personally and the culmination of a long journey. At Stanford in the 90s, when I was in the Ph.D. program, there was already a lot... Read More >
The MongoDB and Ruby ecosystem is strong and growing. With continued advancement of 10gen's MongoDB Ruby driver, community-developed tools such as MongoMapper and the growing Mongoid ODM projects Moped and Scooter, more and more developers are using MongoDB more fluidly with Ruby and the corresponding web frameworks.
We need you to share your expertise! We want to hear stories on how you've modeled data in Ruby, what tools you used, or step-by-step instructions for building an app. We're also interested to hear what tradeoffs you made, and the insights that you've had. This is an opportunity for the community... Read More >
