There’s just a week to go before our European conferences, when over 400 members of the MongoDB community will gather in London, Paris, and Berlin. The level of interest in and enthusiasm for MongoDB is really exciting. There are just a few places left if you still want to attend either the London and Berlin events. Paris is now sold out but we are taking names for the waiting list.
10gen founder Eliot Horowitz, and several of the key engineers developing the MongoDB project will be presenting sessions aimed at developers and administrators interested in learning... Read More >
MongoDB is emerging as an alternative and complementary database to traditional technologies like PostgreSQL. 10gen is very excited to be sponsoring an entire track on MongoDB at the Postgres Conference in New York City this month. Getting involved in Pg East will be a great opportunity for the vibrant open source communities around Postgres and MongoDB to learn from one another.
At the conference, there will be 13 session on MongoDB. In addition to four presentations from 10gen engineers, several MongoDB users from the community will be talking about their experiences using MongoDB in production. For example, foursquare will... Read More >
A little history lesson on what led me to 10gen. In 2002, I got lucky and met Marc Fleury of JBoss fame at the inaugural application server vendor shootout at the Atlanta Java User Group. At that meeting, Marc proclaimed that JBoss was ...FREE and it didn’t SUCK.” I went on to convince him to hire a 26 year old kid who had been a technical recruiter for 5 years. At JBoss, I learned the power of bottom-up software movements and how powerful developer-led communities can be. This is one of the reasons I am at 10gen today.
10gen is pleased to announce the first MongoDB developer blog contest of 2011. We’ll be announcing the contest categories at the beginning of each month, and the 10gen engineering team will pick the winner. We hope that these contests will be a way for developers to share their experiences with MongoDB and learn from one another. And we are giving away some pretty cool prizes :-) This month we’re teaming up with (mt) Media Temple, who is offering free hosting to the winner.
Contest Rules For our March contest, write a detailed blog post on your personal or... Read More >
Hi, my name is Max Schireson and I recently joined 10gen as President. I’m writing to share some thoughts on the industry and why I joined 10gen.
Why am I joining 10gen? I feel the database industry is changing. During the 16 years I have worked in the industry, developers have intermittently battled DBAs, with developers wanting data stores that map more closely to their programming models. Usually the developers lost. Now, with open source, I think the balance of power is shifting.
Don’t get me wrong, I worked at Oracle for 9 years and I believe that... Read More >
Wow.. MongoSV is behind us. With over 500 attendees, four tracks, and 36 talks, this was the largest MongoDB event to date. We sold the conference out within a few of weeks of announcing the event. The overwhelming interest in MongoSV demonstrates the excitement about MongoDB and the strength of the MongoDB community. And for a while, #MongoSV was the #2 trending topic on Twitter for the SF Bay Area!
Our next conference will be hosted in a larger venue, but no matter how large or small the event is, it is important that we meet these... Read More >
10gen is pleased to announce MongoSV, a full-day conference about the open source database MongoDB. It is the 10th MongoDB conference we’ve organized, and we hope that it will be the highlight of a great year of events bringing together the MongoDB community. We are partnering with Microsoft to host the event at their facility in Mountain View and expect over 300 developers and DBAs for our largest event yet.
The main conference track will feature 10gen founders Dwight Merriman and Eliot Horowitz and several of the key engineers... Read More >
In the past few months, we’ve seen tremendous interest in MongoDB and the list of production deployments has continued to grow. As enterprises increasingly deploy MongoDB in business-critical applications, we understand the importance of knowing there is a company behind the product to ensure the success of these deployments. At 10gen, we offer companies support packages that include:
Support from 10gen engineers that started and are actively developing the product
Enterprise support with options for up to 24/7 coverage
Guaranteed response time to help you meet internal SLAs
10gen is launching a two-day training program called MongoDB for Administrators. Anyone administering MongoDB will find this course invaluable. The comprehensive, 2-day session will be led by one of the software engineers at 10gen working on the database.
The course covers everything a database administrator needs to know to successfully deploy and maintain MongoDB databases and shard clusters. In addition to deployment and maintenance, course topics will include diagnosing performance issues, importing and exporting data, and establishing the proper backup and restore routines. We'll present ideal hardware configurations and discuss common pitfalls for new deployments. The course also includes an... Read More >
