In May I had the opportunity to speak at the MongoDB conference in SF. I ran through how Loggly uses MongoDB to store statistical data on the data we recieve and how customers can use our API calls to render visualizations of their logging data. I also hacked a visualization example of events per device using the smashing protovis.js library, which you can view here.
I'm thoroughly excited to announce I will be speaking again at the MongoSV conference in Santa Clara in December.
