MongoSV, our annual user conference in Silicon Valley, is coming up on December 9, and we’ve been busy selecting talks for the event. Dozens of users submitted proposals, so assembling the schedule was not easy. Nevertheless, we have a great lineup, with submissions covering a wide variety of topics for all users of MongoDB, from novice to experienced.
For developers coming from a relational background, the schemaless nature of MongoDB can be both liberating and challenging. Application design with MongoDB is going to be a key topic at MongoSV, with sessions on Building A First MongoDB Application (... Read More >

Today we’re pleased to release the MongoDB Monitoring Service (MMS) to the public for free. MMS is a SaaS based tool that monitors your MongoDB cluster and makes it easy for you to see what’s going on in a production deployment.
One of the most frequently asked questions we get from users getting ready to deploy MongoDB is “What should I be monitoring in production?” Our engineers have spent a lot of time working with many of the world’s largest MongoDB deployments and based on this experience, MMS represents our current “best practices” monitoring for any deployment....

10gen is hiring Language Evangelists to work with the Ruby, PHP, Python, Perl, Java, and node.js communities. The evangelists are responsible for not only working on the language driver but for being the liaison to that language community.
We expect evangelists to work on open source software as part of their day-to-day activities. On one day, it might be building a cool sample application to be used as an example in our docs, in a blog post, or in a presentation. On another day, it might be working with existing libraries and frameworks... Read More >
10gen is excited to participate in the fall hackNY hackathon on October 1-2. hackNY connects talented students with New York City startups through hackathons and summer fellowships. We’ve been honored to participate in the hackNY program since its inception. We have had two great summer fellows who made substantial contributions to MongoDB, and we’ve helped many students use MongoDB in their hacks.
For this year’s event, we wanted to help draw students from other cities to show them the vibrant startup culture in New York City. To that end, we’re pleased to announce that 10gen is sponsoring free transportation... Read More >
